Other thoughts redux 900 1992

"A fuel smell is present after the slow start or long crank. For some reason the engine seems to be calling for excessive fuel when the engine is cold."

The fuel odor could be a leaky injector; when I've experienced that, it is not only hard starting cold, but runs a little rough for a minute or so as the excess fuel gets dissipated.

With the OBD mode 3 (works in Regina too right?) you can open up the injectors to simulate that. When I've tried that with a gauge connected, the residual pressure shows the drop. Another clue might be the oil smells of fuel; dipstick is high.
