Sounds like one of your chambers isn't firing. Run your car for a few minutes, shut it off then pull your plugs one at a time and see if one of them is wet. Might just need a new plug.

If it has the ignition module attached to distributor with 2 small hex head screws, and plug in harness to it. ( 4'-5" long x 1-1/2"- 2" wide approx.) I would change it. That was a common symptom of those.

You may have run out of gas in the front tank, but the gauge may have been reading the rear tank or the front sender is stuck. Is the fuel line switched electrically or manually controlled? How are the gauge connections switched?

Check for a bad temperature sensor. If there is any code, read it with a scanner, and it will usually tell you what is going on.

SOURCE: ford f150 4.9L starts when cold then after 15

It could be the fuel pressure regulator. If you hold the gas pedal to the floor will it start then? The fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail and should have a vacuum line going to it, if you pull that vacuum line off and there is gas there the regulator is bad. There's a diaphram in there that can rupture and the vacuum of the engine sucks gas into the intake manifold and floods the engine. The regulator is about $100 from Napa or O'Riley's auto parts. If you are going to change that yourself be sure to let the fuel pressure bleed off. Let the vehicle sit with the ignition off for a least a 1/2 hour.

2007 Hyundai Accent GLS won't start when it's cold

probably need to be using a lighter weight oil. I use 5w-30 in central Texas. If you are that far north, where oil gets cold and thickens up....

have dealer verify by dropping off for service, parking outside overnight, and then try to bring it into the service bay next morning for service.

Starts great when cold, once you run it for a few minutes, it won't star again. What could it be?

It could be a number of things. FIRST, you need to find out what is missing or malfunctioning when it is refusing to start. The easiest way is to pull a spark plug wire and check for spark while the engine is not starting. If you have a strong, BRIGHT BLUE spark, then it would be safe to assume that the ignition system is OK and that the problem is most likely being caused by the fuel system (something like a malfunctioning Engine Coolant Temperature [ECT] sensor). If there is weak or no spark, then the ignition system is at fault and the ignition system needs to be diagnosed (bad TFI Module, Ignition coil breaking down when it gets hot, etc.).

Checking the Engine Control Module (ECM) for fault codes would not be a bad place to start either. There may likely be a fault code that will tell you what is going on.

I have a 1992 F150 4.9L. couple weeks ago it stalled out and wouldnt start, changed the coil it started right up and abot four more times that day then nothin. I have a new coil, new ecc, new cap,rotor,...

1) Have a look at the starter relay. Pull it out and ease the cover off and then check out the state of the solder joints. If any are dry and or there are signs of annular cracking around any of the power pins simply reheat with soldering iron to make good. 2) Check out your idle air control valve. Clean the throttle body interior and passageways to and from the IAC. Check that the valve is free to open and that it opens when at idle. 3) Check out your fuel pressure regulator (FPR). It sits on the end of your fuel rail. When the car is idling pull the vacuum line from it. The engine revs should pick up for a few seconds before running roughly. If you do not get this response apply vacuum to the FPR and this should cause the engine revs to drop. If by applying suction you pull fuel throught he vacuum port then the FPR needs changing 4) Lastly check all vacuum lines. Spray suspect areas with WD40 and if there is a leak there the engine will jump slightly in revs.
