Hi guys, new to the forums and Audi's in general.

I have a B5 that has difficulty starting from cold. This is maybe 3 out of 10 cold starts, it cranks but nothing, it won't start on these occasions after lots of cranking, it only starts once i spray some easy start into the throttle body.

Most of the time, it starts first try.
The lowest temperature the car see's is about 5 degrees overnight.

I have researched into what it could be, and I've found it's either the cam sensor or crank sensor, would this be true in my case?

Thanks, David.
