The alternator only charges the battery. You might want to check the fuel pressure before and after cranking the engine.

My 2000 Explorer 5.0 engine is really hard to start.


Fuel can be a problem. There is a system called the "cold start sequence". This is an electronic solution to the old choke system. This system is triggered by the water temperature sensor. If the water temperature sensor is stuck on a warm mode, the engine will not have a choke.

You might change the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure. Check battery voltage too as sometimes weak voltage will make for misfires and as the alternator creates more juice the engine runs better.

If the timing chain is off one tooth it will be hard to start. Check the coil and make sure you getting a good spark. Also make sure yor battery is good and your alternator is putting out at least 13.6 volts or more.

Wont start. Battery and starter, and alternator test ok.


problem starter switch is next
jumping the terminals of the starter will turn the engine over but unless the ignition switch is working , there is no circuit for the spark so it will not start

Hard cold start - engine will crank for a minute or more before it catches. runs rough until up to operating temp.


check voltages in the battery and have your alternator checked a bad battery could delay engine starts until the alternator can charge it enough to start and if the battery is still bad then it will run off your alternator drawing alot of power sucking the battery dry and feeding off your alternator

My van turns over, as if it wants to start, but the engine isn't catching, which is what should make it start. I have checked the battery, starter, alternator, and fuel pump, all of which are good. I


hi,

spray some starting fluid in the the carb or throttle body and see if it runs for a second then dies. if it runs then dies then its the fuel pump, if it wont start with a shot of starting fluid then is spark, take off the distributor cap and inspect for corrosion. heres a video for the ignition control module thats probably it then..

I went out to move my 2005 cavalier and when I shifted from reverse to drive, it slipped right thru everything and wouldn't catch. It wouldn't even catch in park. I pulled the parking break and...


I don't know beans about automatice transmissions and the average person can only check the fluid levels and take it to a transmission shop if it is more serious.
As far as the engine goes, you need to localize the problem because with the other indications it might not be the normal stuff. So, what I would recommend is that you take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the crank with a large wrench (CW only) with the car in neutral. If you can turn it, then it is probably not your engine freezing up. If it won't turn then the transmission is probably not disengaging from the flywheel - maybe the torque converter.

If it does turn over, then you can put the belt back on and try to jump start the car with another vehicle or the boost function on a battery charger. It it starts then you know to look at the charging system - battery, alternator. If it doesn't start then the starter or the starter reley.
