Hi All. First time poster. Had my car for approx 14 years now. I have a new issue in the last 6 months or so, (Dont drive it often) i get a check engine light when starting. this is usually fixed by turning off the car once or twice, then starting it again and it cranks over just fine. I also have a fault where sometimes the engine light is off. but its hard to start. cranks over for maybe 5-6 seconds and Idles very low as if its gonna stall but then comes good. this seems worse when the car has been driven and sits for maybe 2 hours or so. havnt noticed while its cold or red hot.
Note, Once the car is started everything seems good. no wierd behaviour.

I recently replaced the old Starter Motor as its Solenoid was hammered after all those years with a new Bosch starter. I do have the Envyous customs software but its not reading a fault from the pcm for my engine light. nothing is stored. have also tried some android apps with bluetooth OBD2 connection. nothing there either.

Also recently had ABS Fault due to a wheel sensor faulty from recent track day. Probably unrelated but have replaced a rectified.
