Cold morn - not starting. Car was moved a few feet night before.
This is the second time its happened to my Suzuki Ignis. After starting the engine the night before and moving the car a few feet, on start up the following morning (in the cold) it struggles to start.
Why would this be so?
Would turning the ignition on, moving a few feet then switching off the night before affect the start-up the following morning?
Re: Cold morn - not starting. Car was moved a few feet...
OK, so starting the engine uses a lot of battery power, and the engine needs to be left running a while to recharge the battery.
When it is cold batterys don't hold as much charge (not quite the correct technical term, but I don't want to go into battery mechanics and chemistry here). You either need to pop it on a trickle charger or let it run for at least 15 minutes.

This may happen if the connector is disconnected from the sensor, or the sensor could be bad. The sensor is probably located in the thermostst housing at the engine outlet. Follow the top radiator hose to the outlet.
I have got a Suzuki Alto. I been having problems lately. When ever it rains the car get flooded inside. I keep getting a puddle of water by the back and front and under the seat of the passenger side of the feet. It happen when the car is standing stationary at night and in the evening when it rains and by the morning there is a puddle of water inside. As attached in the picture. The garage did a get wash but they could not find no leak and fixed the rim of the doors on the passenger side of the door too but it still keep happened and I went back the garage but they have done all the investigation but they still can't seem to find the problem for the water flooding inside of the car. Can you please help in understanding what else could be the course of this problem. I look forward to hearing from you.
When you switch your car off at night and leave it till the morning, especially in older cars, gravity causes oils and lubricants to drip to the bottom of the car, then when its cold and you start it in the morning the oil doesn't do it's job correctly. you need to let the car heat up before you drive it, that should do the trick.
and also on a side note, if the car is automatic,if it isn't revving out before it changes gear it's fine.
Every car needs a heating engine time specially when its cold, I recomend like about 5 to 10 minutes after you start engine and before you change from P to D. If you try to start the engine first time in the morning, it's cold outside and you immediately go on run you are going to have this trouble every time. Every engine has it's operational standard temperature a 5 to 10 minutes working engine, car stopped, may guaranty this standard temperature and optimal function conditions, and also keeps a longer life of your car.
