Could be the fuel pump relay, or a faulty pump, or pressure regulator.
The fuel system is supposed to hold pressure after you turn the engine off. A faulty pump or pressure regulator could allow fuel to drain back into the tank overnight. You would need to crank the engine for several seconds to build pressure back up.
The relay could be faulty and not giving the fuel pump power until the oil pressure comes up.

SOURCE: 2001 mazda protege will not start

well, with all that you have changed the only two possible things that are left PCM and the ECM....

Do you have an alarm system on this vehicle? If you purchased this car second hand it may have something that is inhibiting the engine from firing. From what you have told us here that would be where I would start looking.

I really hope this is helpfull

SOURCE: Mazda Tribute Intermittent Starting problem

I can think of 2 possibles,it could be a bad battery cable or an intermitent short in the starter solenoid, check or have the battery cables and there connections on both ends first not only are they a cheaper fix but the problem you describe sounds like a current flow issue.Test them with or have them tested with an ohmmeter they should show o ohms resistance,and while not attributed to the problem I do not reccomend using Bosch spark plugs of any variety,the best plugs for any Japanese vehicle are NGK's,this comes from my personal experience with them and other techs that I have worked with.

Don't waste your time. Have the intake manifold gaskets (upper and lower) replaced. Check all vacuum lines for leaks. Clamp all vacuum hose connections.
Do NOT replace any sensors unless the computer codes indicate.
THIS WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM!

Renault clio 2001 manual. starts every time when cold. Once warm and the car is switched off it will not start for 15-30mins. Immobilizer light goes out with both keys so assume that immobilizer is ok


Not really up on the Renaults. But the usual things that could be wrong with your conditions are. The coil and or ignition module is bad. Also the starter can do this, if it doesn't turn over with the key. All when hot, can be bad and can keep the engine from starting. But work fine when cold.

When I turn on the engine of my Mazda 323 Sedan Standard Diseal (2000 Model), it struggles to start up, especially if I turn off the again after the intial start. The initial start is OK, but any...


thee are many things that cause this, first worn piston rings could cause it not to start when it's cold or the glow plugs are bad that would cause it not to start the first time, however you say one it starts and shut it off it is hard to start afterwords so this would lead me to believe you have a plugged fuel filter or a pump going out. The reason I say this is it does it only when cold so two things can happen that could cause this, the fuel would be to thick for the pump to pump the fuel or bad glow plugs, however if the engine started then and was hard to start afterwords I would suspect the fuel filter or fuel pump.

Car starts and stalls. Don't hear sound of fuel


The mechanic should check on the fuel pump and the Idle of the fuel pump . if the fuel pump is malfunctioning then you have to repair it.Then also the throttle if the throttle is being worn out or malfunctioning then you have to repair or replace it.The Idle should be adjusted because of the engine is stumbling .the reason why the engine is stumbling or the car over heats is that the fuel pump is not functioning good or there is a problem in the fuel pump.and also it is the reason why the engine light goes off when cold because of the engine problem is in the fuel pump.such fuel or is not entering or going to the engine.

Truck refuses to start during cold weather


Hi!
I presume via your very brief description the vehicle is Diesel? if so have your Glow/heater plugs tested if good? timer relay for them.
When you turn on the ignition does the yellow/amber glow plug light up for a few seconds? if so try turning the ignition on wait for it to go out turn off then back on straight away wait again turn off then back on straight away when it goes out for the 3rd time try starting you may have a couple of plugs still warming so a boost may get you going.
Good luck!

2001 MAZDA TRIBUTE COLD STARTING PROBLEM


My wifes car had this same problem at about 100000 miles and after many trips to the shop it turned out to be carbor build up in the intake manifold. A fuel injector cleaner was hooked up and it helped the problem, but did not completely solve it. In oreder to get it totally clean the intake had to be removed and clean it out manually.

B 2500 diesel pickup hard start from cold


Hey mate,

I have a Mazda B2200 from 1985, which has the same R2 diesel motor, and I had this same problem, which was exacerbated by the cold of winter....even here in a mild Melbourne.

Each time you turn the ignition on, the QSS (Quick Start System) powers up the glow plugs for about three seconds. This recycles again about three times, then.....nothing. The QSS reckons that you ought to have the bugger running by now!

In my desperation, I located the cable to the four glow plugs, and ran a second wire from the battery (+) via a push-button switch which I installed on the dash. This is my glow-plug BOOST circuit.

Now, when I want to start from c-c-c-cold, I push the button (with the ignition on) for about ten or fifteen seconds, which gives the glow plugs a goodly time to heat up the combustion chamber, and when I hit the starter, she usually fires up with a rattle, and a cloud of grey exhaust smoke.

BINGO!

(Of course, once the motor has warmed up, there is no need to use this BOOST circuit, for the combustion chambers are already hot enough to detonate the injected fuel.)

Have a go at it, as I know that it works!

John.
