    make sure the oil reads to the full mark.if its run low for 2 long you can hurt the motor.

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 12, 2009

    no you have a more serious problem which i think willlead to your crankshaft sensor being bad.if its getting good fire then it wont be the sensor but if you arent getting any fire then it will be.

There could be many causes for a small leak, including foreign debris, small crack or loose hose. Using just water with no antifreeze can damage your radiator in sub 32 temps so always mix with coolant/antifreeze. One temp solution is buying stop leak from a auto part store, another remedy I've heard work is putting black pepper (finely ground) in your system to stop small leaks and it actually works. Good luck.

Started fine last night. It was cold this morning and wouldnt start. the temp has warmed up, but it still wont start


if it was to cold the battery may have been damaged. inside your battery are plates of material that with alkaline. well nevermind. your battery got to cold breaking the plates inside. solution: new battery

Wont start


have you tried a boost while you are trying to start it... that battery may not have enough power because of the cold.
as it gets colder the effiency of a battery goes down but the amount of power the starter needs goes up.
