Question about 1992 Ford Club

In cold weather engine/car vibrates

I live in Chicago. This is the 2nd winter I've had this car and the pattern is, it only vibrates in the winter. It didn't vibrate during the summer. The engine runs smoothly but the whole car is vibrating, if that makes sense. Recently replaced parts include; altanator, water pump, battery, spark plugs and wires.

2006 nissan altima won't start in cold weather

Do you have enough antifreeze in your engine? If the coolant is freezing up the engine will not turn over and your block can bust. You should always winterize your vehicle if you live in a cold climate. Check the coolant in your burp jug and radiator and see if it's frozen, if it is, you can try placing a small heater under the car or at the very front of the car as close to the radiator as possible to defrost it. You'll have to cover it with some blankets to keep the warm air in and be careful not to cause a fire! If you can get it defrosted you need to get it winterized a.s.a.p. if the engine has not been damaged. Hope this helps.

If there is plenty of antifreeze and it is not frozen up, then have your battery checked. Extreme cold & heat can kill a battery. Hope this helps.

Suitable engine oil for camry 96

  • Hi, Lijo.

  • The manufacturer recommends 5W30 conventional. I like Castrol myself. for a 1996 Camry. Newer Camry's require a 5W20 synthetic but not yours. Looks like 4 quarts is the amount.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

My car fails to start when its cold outside. I live in Chicago so the winters are horrible, but that shouldn't kill my battery ever winter. Should I take it in? Could there be a more serious problem?

Make sure to use 10W-30 oil at oil changes so that the starter doesn't have to work so hard to turn the engine when cold. Have Autozone or similar business check (for free) the operation of your alternator so that the battery is in peak shape. If your trips are fairly short, the alternator may not have sufficient time to restore the energy lost during the start procedure. You may need to augment the battery overnight with a small trickle charger every few days. Make sure the spark plugs and plug wiring are in good condition. Good luck!

Change your engine oil to a winter blend this may help If your car uses synthetic oil a thinner variety should be used in colder weather or let the engine warm up for longer before driving it.

Engine starts, but won't stay started unless I step on the gas.

It sounds like to me your mechanic recommened you change your timing belt and water pump due to a maintance issue. If vehicle still runs good with old timing belt new belt wont change running. Cold weather and low cranking amps (poor battery) will cause starting problems.

What oil type

Go with the shop manual's recommendation - it's put out by the manufacturer. If they list different viscosities for cold vs warm weather, you may benefit by following that if you live in a climate with cold winters (ie, 5W30 in winter, and 10W30 in summer).
