Question about 1995 Geo Metro
Hi- my peugeot 306 started fine this cold morning-i drove just up the road and the engine revs slowed down and it stalled--what may have caused this
Looking at the brief description of your problem it may be your heater plug timer? when you start the vehicle from cold the glow plugs have to heat up. These are little pencil type plugs that are mounted in the cylinder head they are timed and glow rather like the bar of an electric fire so the hot spots in each cylinder warm and give precise combustion. If the timer/relay gives only a short burst of power your car will start as normal but if the cylinders are still cold/cool when it shuts off the Vapourised Diesel doesn't ignite correctly so rev's drop and if you can't raise them will stall. When you turn off the ignition and back on again the timer/relay kicks in glow plugs glow and bingo your'e off again. I presume after the first stall everything is back to normal? if not how far up the road is it before engine dies? also how long after starting does it stall?
I hope you don't mind the Epic, Oh! if your 306 continues try starting the car and waiting a while listen for a click like a switch or if the interior light is on when it brightens after a few seconds turn off the ignition then back on and start then see how far you go!

I would also like to see if I can get an answer for this question to. It has been getting slightly colder here and now (but only like 10 Degrees C so 50F) in the mornings my 2006 Chev Duramax Desiel is stalling in the mornings. It may stale right after I start it or maybe it will just hesitate a whole bunch when trying to accellerate. But then after about 10-15 minutes of this it stops and it is fine for the rest of the day. Even if I turn it off and start it again. What could this be?
