Cold Start Problem

I have a 1988 Bronco with 302 fuel injected with 103,000 miles. It acts as if it is not getting fuel or enough spark to fire when first turn key. When I try the second, it seems to go ahead & start. It has only recently started this.
Thanks

Cold Start Problem

I had a '77 Ranchero that had a similar problem. I found that when cold I could crank and crank the engine and it wouldn't start. The funny thing is that after I let go of the key it would start. It was the wierdest thing and turned out to be the selenoid. When cold and the key was in the start position, the ignition wasn't getting electricity; but it would when the key was released and went to the run position. Fortunately, the engine was still moving and would get spark and start.

Wierd!!!

Bruce

Someone has too much time on their hands.
