When you pump the gas pedal can you see fuel spray into the carb .sounds like your pump squirter isnt squirting the gas in to start on a cold start similar to the choke coming on ... or your choke isnt coming on ..try rebuilding the carb or a replacement carb if you can.

Where does a cold start sit on a chev spark 0.8 2008 and can that cause it not to start?


sounds like it needs a good tuneup, and maybe a battery! most cars start in about 5-10 seconds, even on a cold morning.if all is ok. good-day!

Toyota lucida hard to start most times. occasionaly ok. 2.2 diesel. everything seems to work as should


in cold weather diesel gels up and sometimes causes a no start issue..a cetane fuel additive helps with this issue. if temps go below 20 degrees, add a quart per tankful of cetane to the fuel to help start on cold mornings. also diesels require more amperage to crank than gas engines do..thus a stronger battery is needed..

Runs fine when cold, not when warm though


The next time it won't start check the fuel pressure you should have 48-55 psi with key on and engine off.

Hard cold start 1997 Jetta gas


can't say for sure but almost all engines that have come to me needing ether to cold start have poor compression. test the compression first.
you sould never need to use ether on a gas engine and very carefully on a diesel when very cold.

You probably have a clogged fuel filter. There should be an inline fuel filter between the gas tank and motor, replace that and your good to go.

93 Grand Cherokee 4.0 trouble starting in cold weather


Welcome to the forum. Your question has to many variables. Cold weather out here in Cen Cal this time of year is mid 40s. Is the problem when the vehicle is cold as in ovrernight but starts ok when it is warm? Does it crank OK but seem like it's not getting fuel? If you hold the throttle slightly open, does it start OK?
