Sometimes when I start my car the engine seems to be working on 3 cylinders... but after I press the gas pedal 2 or 3 times it starts working fine.
Normaly this happens when I drive a litle harder when going for work after lanch an then start the car at the end of the working day.
My car has an early 1.8 16v KR with k-jet (without lambda, O2 or knocking sensor)

Any ideas

thanks in advance

Dirty fuel injector usually. As you rev it, the flowplate moves up, giving the injector more fuel and forcing it to open. My girlfriends car does the same thing... I just haven't fixed it yet.
