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.
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.
It would shure help if you had the year end the model of the car on hear,Like it is a little bit hard to belive that your a tech, How much have all vehicles changed in the 18 years that you been a tech.?
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.
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
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.
you hit the nail on the head ,cold and silicone chips ,they do not like the cold weather they can be temperamental to say the least ,as for finding the faulty component you will need an identical car that works ok ,then when yours will not start try swopping bits till you hit the one causing the problem.or sell it for a nice manual diesel version,
