Question about Cars & Trucks
Bought this car in Cali came back to Nevada now it's gotten colder and the car is very hard to start in the mornings. After it is started and warm its ok. But if it cools down even a couple hours have to start all over again. Have replaced plugs,cap and rotor,plug wires,changed oil,also changed fuel filter.Have run fuel system injector cleaner thru system.What should I check next to solve problem?
I would change the coolant temperature sender. Not the one for the gauge if it has one, the one for the computer. This is what tells the ECU to go into phase lock loop.

I had this problem too exept I have no clue what parts or blah b;ah blah. I just know that my coil pack was getting fried.burnt out because my wires were bad. The mechanic I went to was a moron because I took the car to him 3 times and he kept saying it was the coil ad kept replacing it. I took it to my uncle and he said my wires were in horrible shape and when this is the problem it fries your coil making your car run like a lawn mower! Well all i did was replace my wires and the car ran great! Well I hope this helped..

If you can get a fuel pressure gauge, check and see if the pressure is 16 to 24 lbs after the engine has warmed up.
I would connect the pressure gauge when the engine is cold, make sure it does not leak or touch anything hot, place the gauge between the hood and the windshield and drive the vehicle until it is at the temperature you feel it "starts hard". Shut the engine off and try to repeat the no start or hard start and make sure the pressure is correct.
Also, when you shut the engine off, watch the pressure and make sure it holds and does not drop to (0 LBS) of pressure.
One last question, has the fuel filter been changed in the past 30K.
Let me know.

that has a votec engine in it the fuel pressure is droping at knight and it takes 60 psi before the injectors will fire most likely cause fuel pump ,leaking injector ,or a feul pressure regulator
