Mine had the same problem but it would start in the cold but would stall if i tried to move the car.
once in a while i would get the check engine lite on would have a code that said burning too rich .
even when the light was not on it would go through alot more fuel than normal.
i tried changing all kinds of stuff o2 sensors, coolant temp sensor, throtle position sensor, air intake sensor, timing belt, and water pump just because its so expensive to change the timing belt and waterpump is run off of it.
compleate tune up roter cap to the plugs. and nothing worked.

the real problem that nobody but 1 mechanic knew just from the issues i told him.
lifter rockers too tight. and needed to be loosened and re torqued
it cost me just the price of 1 hour labor. about $90.00
he told me honda engins are the best but the lifters tighten up with time and must be re adjusted every 100k miles
mine had 120k when it started giving me cold weather problems and i only met the mechanic at 135k miles my second winter with the problem.
My CRV runs like a new car now!

Hope this information helps your problem..

2002 malibu will not start when cold. After it starts by priming it then starts fine.


ever tune it up, try new spark plugs. gapped to spec.
starts fine and runs fine, not said the latter....????

Cold starts are the hardest, takes
these things to start good. cold.
1: go winter fuel (if cold out, isit? then winter fuel works best)
2: a good engine and good spark plugs, (hot spark)
3: good cold start fueling,
to get #3 the modern car 89- now. needs a working and accurate
ECT sensor, this tells the ECU exactly how much fuel to use.
if the ECT reads warming than REALITY, the fueling will be weak
and may not start or stall fast.

no location stated, nor if car is a daily driver, that is fresh fuel
every week,,,,

Passenger door on my 2dr 89 LeSabre wont open


You're going to have to take the inner panel off to figure it out. If the seat won't go back far enough, you may have to remove it first.

My 89 mazda 323 turns over but wont start


Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.
