Run the fault codes as it may be an ambient air sensor that is faulty or the MAP/MAF sensors

SOURCE: 4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies

I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?

How do I fix my BMW X3 2004 it has trouble starting on cold starts in winter and it stalls? Any solutions? More details below.


First thing to do is run a fuel pressure leakdown test. borrow or buy a fuel pressure test gage for you car and hook it to the fuel injection rail test port, then start the engine and shut it off the pressure should not drop by more than 5 PSI, if overnight it drops to near zero PSI you have a failed fuel pump pressure check valve and you need a new fuel pump. Also clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve with spray throttle valve cleaner.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Replacing the heater plug is a good idea but the problem will surely be on the heater relay. If the relay is faulty it tends to be weak that it may not give the heater plugs enough heat to make the engine turn on a single start. Once the heater plug is replaced I believe you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Starting in the morning cold is a problem. Jeep


The problem is with the engine management system that controls the idle speed for cold starts and pretty much everything else. In the old days the problem would be the auto choke but as this is a new model its the electonics I'm afraid. You can get this sorted out at a dealer. It should still be under warrenty.

My son says that he starts up the 1996 Dodge Ram pickup and it starts right away but if he doesn't keep his foot on the gas pedal for 30 seconds to 2 minutes or so, the truck dies. It will start up again,...


It could also be carbon build up on the throttle body, but regardless the cure is the same. Your going to need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve (IAC). With a can of throttle body cleaner, (follow instruction on the can) clean the throttle body blade and the IAC passage way in the throttle body and IAC. Once the throttle body is cleaned, with the engine off, turn the ignition key to the on position (engine not running) and wait for 30 seconds and then turn if off for 10 seconds and then start it. This should reset the IAC, if it did not work do it again and see if it helps. If not clean out the IAC passage way again. The turning on and off the ignition reset's the IAC and it may still be stuck with carbon build up. Once the engine has started, Note there will be lots of smoke form the tail pipe, that's normal. It's just the left over throttle body cleaner and carbon being burn off, take's not more then 10 min to burn off. Good luck and this should keep you from replacing the IAC. Oh and don't use Carb cleaner, Carb cleaner is to corrosive to the throttle body gasket.

You have a small air leak on your fuel line or the line is not holding pressure when the vehicle is off. The reason it is hard to start at first is it is having to pull fuel all the way from the tank and prime itself. You can verify this by pour a small amount of fuel in the throttle body on the first time you start it and if it starts right up then you know this is the issue. If you have an electric fuel pump it maybe a faulty valve in the pump that is letting the fuel come back down the line when it is off instead of maintaining pressure as it should..

Hard starts in the morning even though replaced most parts


Check the power to the cold start injector. (it's only going to have fire for a few sec. after the key is turned on). If the fire is good, replace the cold start injector. This injector is activated for a few seconds when the engen temp is low to add a little fuel lower down in the intake and closer to the pistons.
