1993 Dodge d250 2wd with 360 and automatic transmission. Engine will not start when cold. I live in a very cold place and every morning it will turn over and sputter but will never stay running for more than thirty seconds. The only way I have been able to get to start is by actually heating the engine with a propane heater for a couple of hours and then it fires right up and runs great. When the engine does not start it acts like and smells like it's flooding, which makes sense. This truck is n
Yeah, cold weather like that makes the oil too thick to move. You need to install a block heater. The kind I like to use are a little heat pump that connects to one of your radiator hoses. When you plug it in it will circulate coolant, warm it throug ... Dodge D150

I have a 1995 chev lumina 3.1 engine. The car always starts and runs fine when cold. After driving the car for a while and the engine is hot it will restart right away after turning off. BUT if the car sits for 15 minutes or more after shutting off it will not restart. Fuel filter ok fuel pump running ok.It will try to start but sputters out like all cylinders arent firing.

Hi:) First thing a old time mechanic would check is the compression of the cylindersif you are below 120 pounds pressure on a few cylinders you could be having trouble getting the engine to fire. Cause would be worn rings, burnt valves, blowen h ... 1999 BMW 5 Series
I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina with the 3.8 liter engine, 197000 miles. The engine cranks up and runs fine until the engine warms up, then it stalls out and will not run. The engine will fire back up, but will not remain running. I have replaced the fuel pressure regulator. When the ignition is first turned on, the system charges to 50 psi and holds. When the engine is cold the pressure drops to 42 psi at start up for about 3 minutes then increases to 50 psi and stalls. Once the engine is warm and r
The pressures you report will work OK and the pressure does'nt seem to be a issue. The coolant temperture senser or the lack of a recent oil change are more likly. Old oil when warmed up may loose all of it's ability to run the engine smoothly and t ... 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

My 2005 sprinter van has a gloplug function problem. The code light comes on and gives me a error code... "gloplug communication problem". In cold weather, engine cranks and fires once then the cranking stops with no fireing in the engine. Just can't start it and when it is a bit milder it will start, but runs very rough at firat. I changed the gloplug control module, no change. I had a shop pull the gloplugs and bench test them, they all work. What else can it be? Can I put in a manual switch

Starting ruff I have a Nisan 1995 Quest GXE van. The van has had a full tune up but still starts ruff. You have to really hold the key in the start position and and hit the gas to get the engine to fire up! At that point you usually will smell gas as well. This has been happening for quite some time. If the engine is cold this is worse. But it will ALWAYS still start ruff even if the van has been running for a while. Would replacing the fuel filter help?! So far I have replaced the spa
I'm leaning toward a bad sensor, as in throttle body temperature, or coolant temperature sensor. The smell of too much fuel is probably from pushing pedal to start, which shouldn't be necessary on a fuel injected vehicle. What does it do if you leave ... 1995 Nissan Quest
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?

Hi, I'm new to this site, I recently brought a 98 1348cc 8valve daewoo lanos. The oil pump was gone so I fitted a second hand engine, the problem is it will not start when cold unless I squirt easy start into it, and then it struggles to rev! it seems to lose power at high revs. I know the engine I fitted was running fine. If I use my hands to restrict the flow of air into the inlet it will rev as it should but when I remove my hands on full throttle the engine will die and stall! Any ideas beca

I have an Audi 80 1.8 petrol 1989. The car starts from cold with no trouble settling to a normal idle speed. However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

Engine starts and runs, best when cold. Then it begins to stumble, almost like it's not firing on all cylinders. Backing off on the throttle eliminates the stumble, then you can advance the throttle slowly to achieve the speed you desire. The power output is decreased, like running on 2/3's the engine. Had the codes read, and replaced the EGR Valve / EGR Positioning sensor and the EGR Control vale assembly. This also had no effect. Replaced the spark plugs, no change. Replaced the Fuel Filter w
If it's a 5.4 litre engine then i would advise u to check the hose that goes to p.c.v. valve to intake manifold. on back side of intake manifold there is a rubber elbow connector that deteriorates. get one from dealer cost is roughly 20-40 bucks. tha ... 1992 Ford F350
1990 Plymouth Voyager Minivan 2.5L 3 speed auto trany. Starts fine and runs fine when cold. But after about a half hour of driving and the engine heats up the trouble starts. The engine acts like it is cutting out but not all the way where it stalls. It bucks and chugs. Like only a few cyclinders are firing. I stop and stand on the brake and give it gas while in gear and it stumbles. I put it in park and give it gas and it revs just fine not missing a beat. I thought maybe it was getting too hot
I think your on the right track but I would start with the CPS (crank position sensor) as it seems most obvious as it normally starts to fail/read inaccuratly when the car gets hot. Should be less then $40 and a much easier replacement then a radiato ... 1990 Plymouth Voyager
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.
