I've noticed my Ody is hard-starting in the mornings but works just fine after it starts. I checked the plugs and found a couple to be whiteish rather than brownish-colored. I have excellent compression (195-200psi all 4 cyls) and I'm pretty sure there's no engine-related damage. I'm thinking bad fuel pump. I am buying a fuel pressure gauge later today to check properly but I'm wondering if I'm barking up the wrong tree here.
