One thing I noticed recently is we get so used to doing things and in that process we inadvertently rush through the procedure. This apparently made a difference on my truck, you think your problem was bad, mine somedays wouldn't start for 15-20 minutes as I'd sit stuck at some intersection
Yes sir, all it took was 1-2 of those experiences and I just about gave up on shutting down the engine for a glide. Odd, why it never gave me this problem in the mornings?
What I learned to do is when doing a glide to keep the ignition off for 3-4 seconds, then turn it back on but keep it on for 3-4 seconds before starting.
So whether a cold start or a glide / EOC / F-AS, always:
Keep ignitions off for at least 3-4 seconds.
And when turning on, let them sit for a bit before starting ICE.
That helped, before starting switch to ignition ON and just wait a sec.
I think this helps the computerized parts get all their bits and processes in order.
A FE gauge should be standard equipment in every vehicle.
Well, i've been taking my foot off the gas right before turning the engine off and it has been bump starting very well now. Also I do agree that you can bump start at 2-5mph in 2nd gear and that any faster is not ideal. So thanks everyone for the good advice!
