Could this be the problem of a no hot start situation? or a sign of a leaking fuel injector?
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Washer is ok I think. May not have been tightened properly
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Plugs are less than a year old.

This could very easily cause starting issues and a slight lack of power is possible also .i would replace plugs as the washer crush seals when tightening this will ensure a better seal
