P2285 code 6.0 litre ford deisel long cranking before starting after starts runs great but oil pressure gauge drops at idle


bad bearings on crank or worn oil pump. Pressure will be up when cold, but will drop when engine warms up. Check for knock in lower end. If so, bad crank bearings.

Citroen c8 wont start when its cold


probably your crank position sensor is bad. it determines the position of crank and adjust ignition timing. when timing is off it wont start.it cant catch. this is unrelated to outside temperature.

On cold mornings Under 32 degrees the car does not turn over. When the outside temp warms up 40 degrees+ it will start. 2003 mini cooper


the battery may be the problem there is a rating on batteries called CCA this is Cold Cranking Amps. This is how much cranking amps the battery has in cold conditions.When it is warmer the cranking amps increase to start the vehicle.

2004 Saturn Ion wont start from time to time when it is cold outside.. Like this morning my daughter went outside and the car started right up with the temp outside 7 degrees. She warmed it up for awhile...


LOL repeating questions. Its your ignition switch. its a common problem with ions ( I myself have a 04 ion and had it replaced twice in 3 years) repair is around 400 dollars with labor. Just google "ion not starting in cold weather" and youll get TONS of threads. No recall either its stupid
