Problem starting when cold

When i try to start the van when it is cold, it is hard to start it. It takes a lot of tries and when it finally starts, it takes about 10 minutes for it to heat up. I recently had the EGR valve changed but that only took the check engine light off.

You might check the battery voltage to make sure your having a full crank to the engine and due to cold temperature there a lot of things that might causing it.i also suggest that using coolant and water or 50/50 help because of freezing point so if you put water more than coolant the freezing temperature are less than required normal.

Why won't my 2010 Ford Econoline start despite all lights/radio etc come on?


It takes a lot more power to start a motor than it does to run the accessories.. First thing to check is for loose or corroded battery cables.. next check the output on the alternator to see if it is charging the battery.

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.

Vehicle will start & run then will quit


What engine? When was fuel filter changed last, and have you by any chance has fuel pressure tested, preferably when no start?
Tried spraying WD-40 into intake at front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try to start.? Sounds a lot like fuel pump going but lets be sure.

Silhouette will not start, but battery put out 12+ volts


You better have the alterntor checked, you said the battery was putting out 12v. was that with the car running or off? If it was running, it should have pushing between 14 and 15 volts, if it wasn't with it running, replace alternator.
