Picked up my GTS-T yesterday (Finally:chuckle: ). Already ive got a slight problem. It doesnt start that well. Once started it idles and runs great. But it doesnt start as smoothly as it should. Is this a common problem? Is it just the battery being a bit duff? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't believe it's a common problem with Skylines in general.

Can you be a bit more specific....do you mean in turns over slowly, or it coughs and splutters a bit, or it has to turn over for ages e.t.c.

It turns over slowly, id say. I have to give it a blip of the throttle to get it started. Don't know if it helps but its like the technique used to kick starting a motorbike.

The fact that it turns over slowly would first of all point to the battery being the most likely cause. As you've only just bought the car, do you have any idea when it was last replaced? I aim to replace mine every 2 years maximum to keep it in good condition....depends on how much you use it of course as well though.
