Starting issues

Hi all, I have a 1997 2.5 diesel bongo, when starting from cold she splutters a lot and quite a lot of fumes from the exhaust, if I give her a bit of a rev it settles down and ticks over smoothley, any ideas why she is sputtering, and it's only from cold. Thank you

Fly mesh on roof tent

Hi another question, the mesh around the roof tent needs to come off as it's had it, is there any special way to remove it or does need to be cut off very very carefully. Thanks.

Roof tent

Hi could anybody tell me if there is some sort of repair kit for the fly mesh around the roof canvas, mine has ripped from top to bottom on both sides or is it a sowing job for the wife. Thank you.
