SOURCE: Ford thunderbird wont start in Cold weather

change distributor cap first and see how it goes could have a crack in it.Failing which you need to test the ignition module when its cold as sometimes a component will break down and not work when its cold ,this is very much a hands on type job so if dist cap doesnt cure it call a mobile mechanic

U are going to have to pull the gas tank out and replace the fuel pump inside the tank, this is common when you run the gas completely out, the pump is cooled by the gas it runs in, if u run it low allot it burns out the pump bearings very quickly.

You might try changing the cabin air filter if your car is equipped.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escape V6 XLT, problem w/ initial start in cold weather

Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

Hard starting in cold weather, turns over but does not start easily. Starts fine in warmer weather


check if the car have the thermostat in the cooling system, because in cold weather the thermostat close the water flow in the cooling system (radiator, head of the motor) and the car gets temperature faster to warm the engine to operational temperature.

When I started my ford 08 explorer sport tracker in the cold it started while running i heard a winding noise for a minute then it was gone what could the noise from?


whining noises are usually the power steering pump. Check your power steering fluid levels. If they are fine do not worry about it, cold weather does this to the pump and goes away as you warm up.

2001 ford 250 s/dv-10turns over fine. wont start sometimes.when it starts it runs fine.seems like cold weather makes it worse.if it starts it wont die.started about a month ago and getting worse.


Make sure the battery doesn't have a dead cell or is over two years old first. Then depending on usage I would definately think about getting a new starter. I would suspect your battery first, due to the cold weather corrolation.

2004 Tauraus stalled while driving.get one hard crank when trying to start.Battery ok starter tested ok


Sounds like you need the alternator tested.Try jump starting it and if it stays running with the other car hooked to it but not when you take off the booster cable then you need an alternator.

Does not shift from 1st to 2nd until high RPM's clunks in reverse. just started.


I would say that your transmission is getting worn out. When the clutches wear they leave extra space in between them and the steel plates, it takes more pressure to engage it and has a tendancy to clunk into gear. This will become much more pronounced in cold weather. Let the vehicle warm up before moving it and it will last longer. It could just be cold weather making this a much more pronounced condition.
