Question about 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

Hard starting this car has been running just fine for the last 5 years.(knock on wood) It is hard to start warm or cold,and it does not matter if its been shut off 2 minuets or 2 days.I am thinking something in the fuel system.When I turn the key to on position I can hear the pump kick on,then I get fuel pressure from the schrader valve on fuel rail.Can the pump still be bad.or maybe fuel pressure regulator or fuel filter? Thank you for any help

Hard starting, rough idle when cold, then smooth running when warm


Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.

When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.

2010 Vibe Type & Quanity of Eng Oil


The 5-30W gives the oil a better heat range, so when you go to Florida, the engine oil keeps it's viscosity better.
The 5-W20 has a lower heat range and is great in the upper states and canada where the temperature is not as hot as Florida or Texas.
The 0-W20 is even better if your in the colder climate like Alaska so the oil is not that thick, and when you have the start the engine first thing in the morning, the oil can move quicker to the upper part of the engine. 
Best thing is no matter what oil you use, just as long as you follow the recommended oil change duration. Your going to be fine and have a long lasting engine and also make sure you warm up the engine first before running it hard to have the piston and cylinder walls expand the same time. As you run the engine hard when it's cold, the pistons expand quicker then the cylinder walls and after a few years. The pistons and cylinder walls will have to much play and you get piston slaps till the engine warms up. 
Good luck and hope this helps and the 5-W30 is more forgiving if you go over a few miles between oil changes.

HARD TO START LIKE NOT GETTING FUEL


The van will start fine for periods of 2 - 3 weeks then will turn over & won't start. Usually within the next day or two it will start & run fine
& the cycle repeats. This has been going on since Jan. I've had it towed 5 times, looked at by 2 different mechanics & a chev dealership
mechanic. Still nobody has a clue whats going on. The van has 94,000
miles & besides this problem runs fine. I've had it for almost 7 years
without any other problems. This is beyond the point of being frustrating. I use the van for my business & its embarrasing when
I have to get it towed from a customers house. If anyone has any
ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Bob

CHECK THE COLD START ENRICHMENT VALVE AND OR THE IDLE CONTROL VALVE. I AM ASSUMING THAT YOUR VEHICLE IS FUEL INJECTED. ONE OF THOSE HAVE GONE BAD.
