TSB for Hard Starting
There is a TSB out for the 2005 model year 2.0L/2.3L and MTX-75 for hard starting. The TSB is 05-9-16. I bought mine used and the previous owner did not have it done, and I do have hard starting, especially if the ambient temperature is between about 30 - 65 degrees. I believe mine gets too much fuel when starting issues occur. If it takes longer than one second to start, I keep cranking and begin depressing the accelerator pedal. The car will then start, usually with a little puff of black smoke (indicating a rich start).
