I used the search function and didn't come up with much. My '95 runs great and doesn't appear to have any other issues, but it intermittently has trouble starting on the first try.

Especially when it has been driven for a while, then stopped, it cranks fine (no clicking issues), and seems like it is going to start, but when you let off the key, it just stops. It will usually start the second try with no problems and doesn't seem to be much of a problem when it's cold first thing in the morning.

I can usually get it to start if I give it some gas as it is cranking, but that causes such a high RPM start-up that the usually quiet start-up rattle is pretty noticeable. No CEL, idle is fine, runs great once it's going. Any ideas?

Hah, and you were making fun of me for having to replace my starter contacts! Sounds like you get to do it too... (okay, okay, I'll help ya.)

I don't think it's the starter. It always cranks fine and I've never had any clicking when I turn the key. It just doesn't seem to "catch" when it's cranking. Seems like more of a fuel or spark issue to me. Not sure. Maybe no big deal.
