could be the tempereture sensor, see below:

Cold Start Problems

In time the coolant temperature sensor corrodes inside the cylinder head. This will interfere with the resistance and signal which will make the ECU think the water temperature is higher than it actually is. As such no enrichment of the mixture takes place.


Fitting a new temperature sender should rectify this fault.
