2001 jimmy cranking no start in cold weather

I was going to take a hair dryer to it but I don't know if this would help. I will check if the fuel pump will engage first but I think it is a weather issue. If it is frozen how would I check for that.

It might be distributor cap, coolant temperature sensor. Try to warm the engine head with hairdrier
espetially distributor cap, plugs connections etc
If it will help look the solution where. Sometimes usefull to check battery and replace oil and fuel
Good Luck

2001 dodge durango, when the weather is real cold


have the ECT checked,
Engine coolant temperature,lets the computer know whether it should push more fuel thru for cold mornings ,
the sensor could be telling the computer that your engine temp is 75 degrees,means less fuel being pushed

It cranks, but it does not run


Have you check the plugs, cables, cap/rotor ?

One thing you can try since it starts good in warm weather, is to ,on a cold morning, take a hair dryer and warm up the suspect part to warm weather condition. Then try and start the car. If it start ok you have probably found the weak part.

Cranks but won't start


1. cranking is "turning over". Starting is what it is not doing. Did you check for spark at plugs when cranking? Why did you change battery?
If fuel line is frozen, generally freeze takes place in the line. Anything you add to tank will not help at this point. (you can heat line with a hair dryer etc (no torches) Most fuels today contain some alcohol so antifreeze for fuel is pretty much redundant. If you have been cranking it fore some time, it would be a good idea to check spark plugs to make sure they are still dry and not fuel fouled... Liquid gasoline does not burn... only fumes ignite. In cold weather, fuel does not vaporize properly and can easily foul plugs.

'98 Yukon - Cold Start Issues (not battery)


I am thinking that there may be a fuel bleed down problem if this is an injected engine.

Try this, turn on the key, but do not try to start the engine for 30 seconds. Then see if the engine will start on the first try.

As for wearing the battery down, cold is hard on a battery, so having an engine that starts easy is easier on the battery.

99 S-10 will not start in windy damp weather.


I would change all of it. Spark plug wires will leak under the high voltage w/o any outward signs. Unlikly fuel pump . Not effected by damp weather. If after all that and it still doesn't work, change the coil.

Hard starting after sitting awhile


My 98 Jimmy runs on synthetic oil and starts well after sitting in cold weather. If the weather is the problem, try checking that. If it is warm... sorry no ideas.
