  1. I will try remove the fuel rail and see if the injectors are leaking. The cars running a 1.8t 20v audi/vw engine bored and stroked to 2l. Would holding the throttle increase fuel while the car is cranking?
  2. So I've done some more research and this seems to be a common problem with e85. People with a variety of cars are having trouble starting with warm e85 no matter what they do with the fuel. Seems the best fix is more air when cranking, could someone please advise the best way to add more air when it's cranking, but then I don't want it to rev too high when it finally starts?
  3. Hmm yes that could explain it, although they are relatively new ID2000 so I'd be a bit upset if they were leaking given I bought what I thought were some of the best injectors. I guess remove all crank enrichment and add heaps of air could help combat this? edit: obviously the solution would be to replace the injector but this would help prove the theory before spending a few hundred $ on new injectors
  4. I keep removing fuel and it starts a little bit easier each time - here is less crank enrichment - https://ufile.io/7zokj Still doesnt make sense as it will fire up perfectly fine no matter the fuel settings if I turn it off - wait 10 seconds and start it again This only occurs if I leave it for 5 minutes or more.
  5. Okay so I tried a few other things. I tried your recommended crank enrichment values with more throttle body opening - https://ufile.io/7ehfz I also tried less crank enrichment values with more throttle body opening - https://ufile.io/qk49s I tried even less again and it seems to be getting better - https://ufile.io/ea5bw I'll try even less again fingers crossed!
  6. okay here is the log without the AIT compensation at 0% throttle. Cranks for quite a long time still https://ufile.io/2qbg3 I will try lower the values a little maybe? 80 - 18 90 - 12 100 - 10 AFR Gauge is innovate motorsports. The car also has the factory air fuel sensor wired in however I don't believe the ECU uses this EDIT: attempted the enrichment numbers above Okay it stuttered into life a little more here with the values above so I'm thinking to add some more air through the startup step table https://ufile.io/2kcse
  7. Two more logs with the corresponding maps - both started poorly tried different things. This is beyond frustrating! If anyone could let me know if the fuel temp is adjusting anything in the map that would be greatly appreciated as I believe that could be causing some problems for the starting. I've read a few threads about e85 not liking to start when it is warm so maybe this isn't software related Log 1 https://ufile.io/r33bn Map 1 https://ufile.io/wpjof Log 2 https://ufile.io/ii6cc Map 2 https://uploadfiles.io/7221q Seems we posted at the same time - I will try these settings now cheers okay I attempted this and sadly no luck - cranked for an extended period of time. I had values of 3 in the AIT correction at 0% throttle however, so I'll let the car sit for 5 minutes and try those crank enrich values again but without that 3% ait correction Log - https://ufile.io/52b9q Map - https://ufile.io/ebluc
  8. Just had a thought, could the car be compensating for fuel temp? That increases a lot when I leave the car. I can't see any tables that adjust fuelling for temp however
  9. Well just went for an hour drive to clear any possible moisture and same problem so I don't think that is the cause. Fuel pressure could be a problem but since I let the pump fully prime before I try cranking the car, I don't think so. When I crank it does cough and try to fire a few times before it really goes. Would that indicate not enough fuel or air usually?
  10. Not too sure what trigger patterns are sorry so I can't check those. The battery voltage is around 10 volts for both when cranking. If you mean Trig1 and Trig2 Arming they look to be the same both times. Unfortunately with the gauge it takes 30 seconds to turn on it is inbuilt into the gauge and there doesn't seem anything I can do about it. One interesting thing I noticed, the crank enrichment was different even though the tune was the same and the engine degrees was only about 1 degree off. I haven't had the injectors out and I will try this next but as there are no other symptoms I would have thought this would show itself elsewhere. I may also buy a fuel pressure gauge, but I always let the car fuel pump prime from the ignition before I crank the car. Given this e85 is a few months old now, and the amount of water vapour coming out of the exhaust I feel this must be somehow related. If the exhaust valves are open when the car is turned off, the cylinders could in theory fill from warm water vapour from the exhaust? That would explain why the car starts fine cold and it's only after I leave it for a while. Today I will go for a really good drive to clear all the water from the exhaust and get new e85 and see if that makes any difference.
  11. Nope haven't had to add coolant in over a year and the oils not milky, as I was really worried it could have been a head gasket. Huge amounts of condensation in the exhaust though I think I need to give the car a really good run
  12. Ducie thank you for your help so far. At first it seemed to have fixed it, but alas the problems continued. I'm wondering if it could be something non-tune related. As there is a heap of water in the exhaust lately from the e85, I'm wondering if perhaps this vapor fills cylinders so it takes a few revolutions to clear before it will fire up? I've uploaded 3 logs. The first two are after about a 5 minute break between starts and you can see it cranks for a while before it fires up. The third is when I turn it off and start the car immediately, and you can see that it has no problem starting under these circumstances. Happy to try any other theories though. 1 - https://ufile.io/0oqfc 2 - https://ufile.io/gjgnd 3 - https://ufile.io/s73ht
  13. Good point I will try this now cheers. Strange that it doesn't affect the cold start :\ as cold start it fires up straight away.
  14. Since I couldn't upload any more logs in this thread I had to upload them elsewhere: Logs: the details in the log relate to the crank enrichment https://ufile.io/92ipd https://ufile.io/jcr5i https://ufile.io/z5a8l Here is the map I used for the logs: https://ufile.io/87e4d For each log I only changed the crank enrichment for 80 and 90 degrees. The log filename shows 80 degrees then the crank enrichment then 90 degrees and the crank enrichment. There are little to no changes in each. Really out of ideas
  15. for some reason I cannot upload any more logs here (only 200kb remaining).
