SOURCE: toyota wont start in wet weather

Your ignition coil has a hairline crack in it. Replace it. It is under the distributor cap. Common failure.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota 4Runner-Knocking noise-front end-cold weather

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on when outside temp is

Take it buy Auto Zone when the light is on and get them to check the code for you. I don't know why it would do it while cold and not hot.

SOURCE: My 2007 Chevy HHR 2.2L, coolant temp sensor is

Sure the engine coolant will be warmer than the outside temperture and if the car has been sitting a long time in cold weather and the outside temperture warms up it could be the other way around. The coolant temperture sensers aren't real accurate as they are a relaitive senser beween hot and cold and the numbers reported don't have to be real just the change from hot to cold and the reching of the coolant to the operating temperture. Noe it the senser doesn't read the opertating temperture coprrectly you'll have all kinds of problems. The therostaste will try to set the temperture of the water to it's set temperture and can open or close completly to get 195 degrees F. Many times if it's too cold then the stat is bad and needs to be replaced This shows up in alot of cars first thing after winter and the first onset of cold weather when the daily tempertures vary the most from day to night.

2011 RAV4 with the multi-disk CD changer. The entire LCD is often blank during cold weather. Is there a known fix for this problem?


One of the disadvantages of LCD displays is that they become less efficient at colder temperatures. You will find it works best in warm weather.

Toyota lucida hard to start most times. occasionaly ok. 2.2 diesel. everything seems to work as should


in cold weather diesel gels up and sometimes causes a no start issue..a cetane fuel additive helps with this issue. if temps go below 20 degrees, add a quart per tankful of cetane to the fuel to help start on cold mornings. also diesels require more amperage to crank than gas engines do..thus a stronger battery is needed..

Cold weather temp gauge stays around 1 quarter towards middle


Given the outside temperature, that is what I would expect to see. The coolant temp is only increasing in fast freeway driving because the engine RPM is constantly faster than around town operations.

Not sure why you would be worried.

1992 toyota tacoma pick up will not start when it is colder outside. Usually when the temp is closer to 0 degree's. When it warms up outside there is no problem.....


Do you have a good battery? Cold weather is hard on batteries. Also you may need to change to a winter grade of oil. Oil thickens in the cold a makes starting difficult as well. Let me know. Thanks.

2001 dodge durango, when the weather is real cold


have the ECT checked,
Engine coolant temperature,lets the computer know whether it should push more fuel thru for cold mornings ,
the sensor could be telling the computer that your engine temp is 75 degrees,means less fuel being pushed
