Hi Simon, and welcome to the Club.

I am just giving you a bit of a guess, but if your car was a 1970 Ford Escort I would say that the choke wasn't working properly.  Probably something to do with the fuel system has something to do with it  --  Plugs or injectors.

As I say, just a guess, but good luck.

Regards,

Peter.
