I have a 96 Beretta, and recently it has been dying when I start it
up. To get it to work, I need to give it some gas as soon as it
starts in order to get around this. Once it is started it runs fine,
itís just that one time on the start up. When I start the car it
starts, immediately revving, then before it goes into the normal idle
it goes down a bit, this is the point where if itís going to die out
it will. So it revs high on the start, low(er) right after, and then
raises up into normal idle. Itís this middle part where I need to hit
the gas to get it going, but once I do there are no problems. I
already put Heet into the car, and now it is doing it more frequently.
It started doing this when it was cold out, probably about a month
ago, when it was in the twenties. However, it did it again to me
today and it was sixty out. I do have an exhaust leak somewhere in
the car (hopefully just the muffler) and I am wondering if various
oxygen sensors and this leak could have something to do with it. And
another thing: it is not consistent. Sometimes it will start and
other times (becoming more frequent) I need to rev it right at the
Any input would be appreciated...
