Ok, I've been doing some searching on here and this is what I've found. Alot of people are having problems with thier hot start plungers freezing up. While trying to fix mine, I broke the prongs that hold the cable in the carb. Some one said this is a very common occurance because of the type of lube and corrosion that gets in under that plastic cap. Has this happened to anyone and what have they done about it? Did you take it to a dealer and have them fix the problem. This is a '03 450 with a stock plunger.
