Engine Dear Sir, I have problem with my 1995 Mercedes Benz C220 engine, during cold start, when I try to floor the accelerator engine choke as if there is lack of fuel, sometime cause a back fire. After warming it about 5 minutes the engine runs well. I check the timing with a timing light it's OK. What seems to be the problem? Do I have to warm it up before I run the car?

Occasionally, cold starting, the engine does not crank. It is almost like a dead battery, but yet the battery checks OK. There is no clicking from the solenoid. After 2 or 3 more tries, the engine turns over and starts. Naturally, when warm, it would not do it in front of a mechanic, who looks at you like you are making it up. The truck has 125K miles and it still runs strong. Do you think the starter is just worn out?

Car does not want to start when warm. Starts right up when cold. I have to put my foot on the floor and then it will barely try and fire several times then it will finally start very rough. I think have to feather it until it comes on up and then cleans out. The check engine light goes on and off. It is getting crappy gas mileage 28-30 and should do better. I have already put a new ignition control module in it. Not sure where to go.

I have a 1995 Toyota Camry with a 2.2 Liter 4 cyl. Recently it has begun not wanting to start when the engine is warm. It turns over and sounds normal, it just won't fire. When it is cold it starts perfectly. Once it is running, it runs perfectly. At first I thought it was the fuel pump woking intermittently but have ruled that out. Not sure what I should check next or what other info might be helpful to someone trying to help me.

What does the check engine light mean for a 2003 rsx? i just started it up in cold weather, and it stalled. i waited a moment, and restarted, and then it worked. but now, the yellowish engine emissions light turned on and isn't going off. i already tried the gas cap/turn 3 times thing, and im waiting to see if that will do anything. aside from it being so cold that it takes two tries to start the car, i really can't think of anything that would go wrong with this car. even though it's 2003, i on

I started my GS and let the engine warm up for a few minutes. As it was idling the engine quit running. I tried to restart it but the battery was dead. Since the battery was 5 years old I replaced it with a new battery. I checked the voltage of the battery and it was slightly above 13 volts. I started the engine and checked the voltage at high idle and it was down to 12.20 volts. I checked the alt. belt and it was in good shape and the tension was correct. I then removed the alt. and inspected t

Won't idle when cold. Engine starts and runs fine and after making a few blocks coming to a stop at a light, it no longer idles. You can turn off the engine for 20 to 30 minutes and start it up and this time it will run fine. I can go several days before it happens all over again. It only seems to happen when the engine is cold. I tried letting it warm up but no success. 1997 Land Rover Discovery XD V8

My wife has a Hyundai Getz diesel (1.5 CRTD GSI) which starts fine from completely cold. It also starts fine after it's warmed up completely. The problem is when you try to start the engine when it has not warmed up enough. Revs won't go higher than about 1500 and you press the accelarator thick black smoke comes out of the exhaust. If you try to drive off while the car is in this state it won't move much faster than about 5 mph while it's giving out black sooty smoke out of the exhaust
