Renault Scenic 2002 intermittent starting problem. Car is running great but occassionally will not start from cold. ( every 3 to 6 months ) If the car is left for a short period it will start. When this fault appears the engine turns over quickly when the key is turned however the engine makes no attempt to start. When the engine is being turned over there is no smell of petrol as if it is flooded.

Hi. I've got a Renault Kangoo which have an issue when I leave the engine off for a few hours. After the engine starts, I couldn't get the RPM to go up when I step on the acceleration pedal. The rpm will only goes up when I engage a gear or restart the engine. May I know what is the problem with it? There are faults df057, df066 and df003 when I scan it.

I have this problem for quite a bit. The idling speed when engine started cold is between 700-800 rpm. As the engine gets hotted idling rpm increase to almost 1000rpm. If idling is adjusted back, the rpm is starts low (engine vibration felt) at cold start and most of the times engine can not start. When gas pedal is pressed the engine stalls and sounds the engine is choking. My vehicle is a 1994 Nissan van with 2L engine. Am not sure if it similar to Sentra or Altima but it is carbureted.


There appears to be a thermal movement of choke mechanism that comes about once vehicle is warmed up. Check the chock connections, hot water pipe and linkages tight or clear.\015\012gazakat ... Nissan Sentra

Toyota 2003 Car of 85kW 2.0 D4D diesel. Who have a similar experience with some of these engines. The problem is this: if the engine is warm and then lowering the engine speed, the car starts to twitch. The car starts to lose power. When holding the accelerator pedal at the bottom, nothing happens. Motor is thinking for 5-10 seconds, then throws a cloud of black smoke from the silencer. When the engine is cold, there is no problem. Cold start, idle, and acceleration is very good with a cold engi

N reg c 250 diesel starting problem when cold the engine will fire up and starts and run fir a split second then dies i then need to turn it over again and again until it starts it will then run fine , i think the fuel is draining back towards the tank, this problem arose at the start of the cold snap however the car has had an engine change since and it has not improved the new engine has the old engine parts built round it .the injector pump was changed with the engine . new heater plugs fitt


On the 250 Diesel and TD replace the 4 O rings on the fuel filter housing. That will solve the hard start in the mornings. ... 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Good day: I don't accept that cold starting an engine at 2000 RPM is OK. Those immediate revs on a cold engine are wearing out parts that need oil lube and warm-engine clearances. Is there a simple way of limiting those cold-start revs to around 1200-1400 RPM? I don't need nor do I want instant warm-up .... I always give my cold engine 30 seconds or so to warm up. Thank you Happy owner of a 2002 Taurus SE with a 3.0 Vulcan engine


I have heard that Fords theory behind that is to supply maximum oil pressure to moving parts sooner. All the Ford products do this and the motors last well into the hundreds of thousand of miles. I wouldn't be to worried about it since there is no is ... 2000 Ford Taurus

My 1993 Nissan Maxima that has 168,000 miles on it and has had the fuel filter changed starts fine when it is hot or cold but starts poorly when the engine has cooled to about a quarter of an inch off the cold indicator on the temperature gauge. The poor starting range is about a quarter of inch to a half inch off the cold indicator. It will start immediately either cold or hot but it takes about 3 to 4 seconds of grinding away to start when the engine has cooled substantially.


When was the last time spark plugs were changed on this vehicle? I suspect a coolant temp sensor at this point, but before I commit to replacing an engine managment component, I would like to get an idea of the lastest maintenence performed on this v ... 1997 Nissan Maxima

My 1995 chevrolet 2500 van, 350v8 engine went click when I tried to start it in the cold. 1. I tightened the battery cables and it started. 2. 2nd time I jumped it and it started. 3. I repeatedly clicked it and it started. 4. I turn the engine with the fan belt, it started 5. I would not start, I left it sit in the cold 5 days and it started. It is blue in color as am I. Both from the cold and depression. I do not have any money to go to a mechanic, as I am out of work.

I have a 2006 Sebring Touring addition V6 (not a convertable) with 79000 miles. I have already replaced the o-ring at the MAP sensor. What is happening is at at cold start in the morning (doesnt matter if it was cold out or not), the engine will start but will act as if it really cold and shake a bit. THis doesnt happen when I try to start the car once I have driven it for a while. Also, 2 weeks ago, the engine started, but I had to press the gas petal down to the floor to get it to move at


Could be an O2 sensor but that will usually throw a fault code and check engine light. Try running Carburator/Injector cleaner through it and check your plugs and wires. It sounds like clogged injectors or a problem with the Coil pack. You might w ... 2006 Chrysler Sebring
