I have a 1997 Chevy cavalier that doesn't start when the weather is cold it will not start early in the morning but will in the afternoon

If it runs normally except for that problem, I would suspect the coolant temperature sensor. The sensor may not be reporting the coolant temperature properly when it is very cold and then the ECM will not provide enough fuel to start the engine (basically you have no choke). Once it warms up a bit, then it starts ok and runs well.

My car likes to start in the. Morning but not in the afternoon and especially not when it's hot . I have changed my spark plugs and my fuel lines and it still does it what could it be .

Most Honda cars have a problem with the fuel pump relay where it works cold but not hot.
You need to know if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start. If fuel pressure is the problem, check the relay.

My Toyota Highlander will not start when the weather is cold, mostly in the mornings, but it starts easily, when the weather goes hot in the afternoon. HELP

Hi, Has a code reader been connected to check for trouble codes stored in the PCM? This would be the first step and the easiest procedure to do before guessing on a cause. From there we would know where to start a diagnosis.

My car clicks and wont start in the mornings. Its fine in the afternoon and evening.

This sound usually means a dead battery. If not, check the wiring to and from the starter for a loose connection.

The most likely problem is that your battery is dying. If your car is clicking and not starting then I am assuming that your are jumping it to get it started. Then your alternator does it's job and charges the battery. In warmer weather and the heat of the engine, the battery holds a charge much better. This could be why you do not have issues in the later parts of the day. Then, over night... when the temperature drops the battery gets cold and dies by morning.

Take your car to an AutoZone or another Auto Parts Store and have them test the battery. If the battery tests good, then we go the wiring problem route. There could be a lose or bare wire that is getting a bad ground in the morning with condensation. After the car heats up this may not be an issue which is why you are not having problems in the afternoon.

My personal recommendation is to have the battery tested first thing. It is quick and easy. This could tell you that a fairly inexpensive fix could handle your car woes.

Post back and let me know if you have any more questions or need any more help.
