Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car starts fine but idles rough when cold

1 Answer


That model of a Capri it could be a blown head gasket, do you see a lot of white smoke out the tail pipe when it is first started? Is the coolant level dropping? It could also be fuel related if the injectors are leaking, it will blow black smoke when first started.
