SOURCE: In cold weather, car floods when trying to start

ncc-1701-d do not listen to this guy. This car is fuel injected. NO CARBURETOR! it's a throttle body! Do not mash pedal at all when starting car anytime. Engine light on? May be a problem with the Idle air control valve or the map sensor check the vacuum hose that goes to the map sensor. Check for vacuum leaks also. Check the three way connector on the hose from the cruise servo to vac. source. reply. 3800 or 3.8 these are two different motors.

2006 ford f-150 truck has a coolstart remote , doors lock, and unlock with remote but engine does not start


It may be the Security module. The "cold start" routine is necessary to make the engine run cold. When you are already inside the vehicle and turning the ignition switch it is not using the "wireless" feature of the FOB's. The ignition switch is hard wired to the vehicle module and would be sending the signal through a wired connection. For the warm start, the "cold start" sequence is not needed and all this proves is you have spark and fuel. Many engines are running too lean to start without the "cold start" sequence. Another remote possibility is a stuck temperature sensor is keeping the cold start off, but that does not explain the truck starting with a key.

My car when using when using my autovox remote starter , starts for 1 second then dies 3 times in a row when cold but works find after warming up .


Cold weather makes the engine hard to start for two main reasons. First, oil thickens when it's cold, which increases friction and makes it harder for the staner motor to spin the engine. ... You can ensure that your car will start in the worst weather by keeping the engine or the battery, or both, warm.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas


This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.

1) see the diagram
2) use the scanner and computer test, this will guide a exactly problem
3) reset the igntion timing, it doesnot matter if your system ha BCM, adjust to accoridng the specification manaufacturer, because the BCM runt according to the information recorderd. remember the BCM =CPU.
4) test the sensor cam/crank with VOM see the diagram.
5) the head gasket i blown, valve timing is incorrectly set. the exhaust system is blocked.

My car doesnt want to start up right away in the morning. Almost like its really cold out and it takes it a min. The rest of the day its fine runs great. Any ideas?


Reason 1 - Gasoline, like any other liquid, evaporates less when it is cold.You have seen this -- if you pour water onto a hot sidewalk it will evaporate a lot faster than it will from a cooler place like a shady sidewalk. When it gets really cold, gasoline evaporates slowly so it is harder to burn it (the gasoline must be vaporized to burn). Sometimes you will see people spray ether into their engines in cold weather to help them start -- ether evaporates better than gasoline in cold weather.

Reason 2 - Oil gets a lot thicker in cold weather. You probably know that cold pancake syrup or honey from the refrigator is a lot thicker than hot syrup or honey. Oil does the same thing. So when you try to start a cold engine, the engine has to push around the cold, gooey oil and that makes it harder for the engine to spin. In really cold places people must use synthetic motor oils because these oils stay liquid in cold temperatures.


Re ason 3 - Batteries have problems in cold weather, too. A battery is a can full of chemicals that produce electrons The chemical reactions inside of batteries take place more slowly when the battery is cold, so the battery produces fewer electrons. The starter motor therefore has less energy to work with when it tries to start the engine, and this causes the engine to crank slowly.

All three of these problems can make it impossible to start an engine in really cold weather. People either keep their cars in heated garages or use "block heaters" to get around these problems. A block heater is a little electric heater that you plug into the wall to keep the engine warm.
i hope it was convince answers

I have an issue that pops up every once in a while on cold days when i start my car. I get no gas going through the engine. The RPM gauge is stuck at 1 and the check engine and ESC OFF lights are on. I...


The issue you describe seems to point to an "Electrical Effect" Most often (in my experience), the CAUSE is seldom discovered and the owner simply lives with it. However, during cold weather, numerous electronic components behave differently (sensors, wiring, connectors & wiring connections, etc.) Was there ever a "Check Engine" light/warning when this happened? If so, find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostics II) scanner and see what/which code(s) were set/stored in the ECU (Engine Control Unit). If any, this could help you narrow your search/diagnostics time to possibly find the CAUSE. Often/frequently I have found that poor/loose/questionable ground circuits CAUSE a great deal of these kinds of problems (as connections/contacts expand in warm weather (getting larger and tighter) and in cold weather 'shrink' (getting smaller and looser). Best I can offer without actually putting my hands on the vehicle. There are literally dozens of 'GROUND' circuits in a vehicle -- your description points to ESC and Engine RPM -- that's were I'd start. You'll want to get your hands on electrical wiring diagrams/schematics of your vehicle. You can go to WWW.HMASERVICE.COM and register your vehicle (by VIN #). Afterward, you'll have access to shop manuals, Technical Service Bulletins, Wiring Diagrams/Schematics, etc about your vehicle.

Hope this helps.

Hi

I suspect the cold weather was the fundamental problem, usually emanating from a battery voltage drop, and kicking in the on board computer gremlins.

Jags just don't like it !

Lets hope the weather improves for you there in UK, and your little gremlin does not return.

Good Luck !
