SOURCE: I started my car this morning and it was idling

yes some times when initial cold start a sensor could get a mis read due to alot of variables,and it would cause trans to shift abrupt. the good thing is it did correct itself and the computer reconized this and detects no stored code. recommend to let vehicle warm 5-10 min before drive. In cold weather you should never just jump in and start car and take off. should always let engine and fluids get to operating temps before drive, This will prolong the life of the motor and trans from internal (expensive) repairs.

When I starts the engine at the early morning while cool, I hear a sound from engine. But hot engine I cannot hear that sound.


most likely your engines making a noise because of the oil gets thick when it gets cold. when it heats up it gets thinner. so when you start it cold its running roughly and that the noise you hear. its completely normal don't worry.

I have subaru legacy model 2010 .i have frequent the engine stops when i am breaking to slow down in a trafic jam,the car vibrate showing engine stops if i press on the accelerator the motor will resu


Could be bad EGR valve or vacuum leak. Egr valve, depending on whether it is stuck open or closed can act like the old choke thermostats on the carburator system making the vehicle run and idle rough when it is cold OR hot but normally only one or the other. Will run fine cold but rough once it's hot or rough when cold and fine when hot. Check or have someone check for any trouble codes in the system. It can hold codes and not make the check engine light come on and may help diagnose the problem.

2002 Jeep Liberty Renegade started car this morning very cold cold Car started rough now the engine is making a clicking noise


have you checked the oil it may be low on oil or you may have a bad cps(cam posistion sensor) so it is not exactly firing correctly you can go to auto zone and they will check the codes for free even if you dont see the check engine light on there will always be some type of codes stored. even codes that say no codes found. this will atleast give you a starting point.

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

1999 Denali rough idel and driving


You should have 2 02 sensors in your exhaust system. The second one trips the ligt if your emmissions are too high abd it monitors the condition and efficiency of the cat converter. The 02 sensor in front of the muffler monitors the fuel adjustment for too rich or too lean. Now, on a cold start there ias a "cold start valve tha enriches your fuel like a choke. It can be the culprit because the #2 02 sensor is doing its job. The cold start valve can be chk'd to see if it is working by observing it.. It is behind the Throttle body. It should be clicking. Good luck and I hope this helped. Oh, wwhen the engine warms up, and you have clear the exhaust of excess fuel the light should go out.

Truck runs rough at start-up in the mornings


If this happens only when the engine is cold or cool, I would suspect a coolant temperature senor that has lost its calibration.
One way to check would be to have the engine controller scanned when the engine is cool then cold.
The coolant temperature should be the same as the intake air temperature. If the readings are not close to one another, change the coolant sensor.
The coolant temp sensor controls the fuel mixture when the engine is cold, normal or hot.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Runs rough when cold


On start (Especially in Cold temperatures)it is harder for the oil pump to bring oil to the top of the engine,making noise more prevalent .Keep fluids level and oil clean and you shouldn't have to worry.
