has anyone had this problem with their vehicle, mine is a 2001, took it the dealer when the problem first stated, they could not find any problem, no leaks, pressure test ok, only happens on cold start up.

well I never got a chance to give that a shot, I took the car for some service the other day, change plugs, fuel filter and Emmision test, the light has never come back on since, and I know it's not burnt out because when I start the engine hot or cold the light does come on for a moment, but that's normal. Still runs just fine.
