    Hey everyone,

    so i recently did a timing chain job, along as replacing the cap, rotor, plugs , wires , starter and all belts. MAF has been cleaned and new IAT sensor in.

    When the car's running, it drives like a dream, but after it warms up it'll sometimes give me a bit of a hard start. It'll crank for 4-6 seconds and then stumble and bumble to life, or sometimes it wont crank at all. Any idea what it could be? the starter relay is new, could it be the EFI relay? Car starts fine in the AM.

    plugs are gapped at .041 now , they were at .032 but it runs good now so i haven't changed them. car is a 2.4l w/o coil packs, i've seen a lot of conflicting info about the plug gap so i'm not sure. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!
