Is there any water in the oil? or may be the sparkplugs.?

I've had a car with the same problem... and that turned out to be the head gasket blown wich led to water in the oil... and getting on the spark plugs... the longer time in cranking would allow the oil to burn off the spark plugs.. and that helped in getting the engine to turn over, once the spark plugs were replaced, and the head gasket replaced... everything was fine.

I'm just trying to offer some help. I'm no professional.

My ford falcon has problem starting after 1st being run and warmed up


Could be several things . Check injectors if leaking can cause flooding and hard starting after warm up. check cold starting unit not still on after warm up . A faulty temp censer can make hard starting . Leaking injectors can be checked by fuel pressure holding steady with engine stopped .

Hello. It sounds like it needs a whole new tuneup done to it.

97 mercury grand marquis wont start after warming up


You need to determine if it is fuel related or spark related. I have seen everything from a pick up screen in the tank to a crankshaft position sensor. Check the fuel pressure when the no start condition occurs, check for spark at the coils. Does all your electrical equipment in the car loose memory?

My 2001 dodge 3500 v8 gas truck will start fine when it is cold, it runs fine, when i turn it off i have to wait a while before it will start again. sometimes it will start when its warn and sometimes it...


Check the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Remove vacuum line after running, any trace of fuel in vacuum hose indicates defective fuel regulator diaphram. This will produce symtoms you describe. The fuel pressure in the rail leaks through the diaphram and causes flooding. Letting the truck sit clears the fuel from engine. As an alternative, try flooring the throttle while cranking hot, this will also will clear a flooded condition.

97 Saturn sl2. Won't start after it gets warm. If you drive it for 15-20 minutes and try to restart it will not engage the starter. Wait a couple hours and it will start fine


It is your engine coolant temp sensor (ECTS). 99.9%. the saturn made them with a plastic tip, so they crack over time. A replacement should be about 15 bucks and not too hard to replace. You'll notice your engine temp gauge not working (always cold).

I don't know much about cars, but here's what happens. When your car is cold, the fuel runs rich. Your broken sensor is always reading that the engine is cold, but when it is warm, it runs too rich and floods your engine, not allowing it to start. When your engine is actually cold, everything is fine.

Have you chg. fuel filter? If so, best to do a fuel pressure test, sometimes( not always) when the pump gets warmed up they can loose a little pressure and thats all it takes just a few # under recamended p.s.i and the truck quits running, you may hear the pump run but its not putting out the correct pressure until it cools down and it starts working again, but after a while quit all together.

Check your engine ignition module. It sounds like it is flaking out.

Sounds like your fuel pump is going out on you. Check your fuel pressure. You should have 40 psi when the key is in "on" position. You should have no less than 5 psi under that when it's running.
