    Hard starts

    Recently my car will not fire up right away like she used to. I have cleaned the MAF, Throttle body, changed plugs and wires and changed the fuel filter.
    Car is running strong with no hesitation when driving. Just had it smog checked and replaced the gas cap last week.
    Any ideas? Thanks

    No SES and no codes. I'll look into the fuel psi regulator. Thanks

    This is a little of topic but you said you had your car smog tested last week. Do you have a print out, do they give you one? If so I am very curious to see how Cali's emission laws compare to those up here in Canada to determine if I can install Long tube headers and high flow cats. If you can scan a copy and post it here it may very well help me, if not just ignore this. Not trying to hijack your thread, thanks. Damn, my Z28 runs clean! or just post it in my thread called "Damn my Z28 runs clean" in this same section, general help.
