quote:'92 Chevy. 4.3L V-6 with throttle-body fuel injection. It does take a little longer to start after sitting for awhile, and it's a little more noisy. Also, I had about two seconds of the tapping/clicking sounds (lifters?) last night...it was about 45 degrees when I fired her up. (Geezz...I just mentioned the tapping/clicking sounds the other day in a post, and now it has happened to me...I'm jinxed!) I'm either gonna have to give up Delo (oh no!) and go to a lighter grade, or try Delvac or Long-Life with their molybendum and see it that makes a difference...

Over a longer period of time the fuel system tends to lose its pressure or bowl go dry if it is a carb. Then it takes a little longer for the engine to get a fireable mixture.
