It sounds as if your timing belt may have slipped a notch. If so you will need a mechanic unless you are mechanically inclined. You fail to mention which engine you have and how many miles that are on it. Try taking it to Autozone and ask them to put a code reader on it to see if it has any trouble codes registered. This service is free and only takes a few minutes.-

in the harsh cold, I run a lighter weight oil in my car because a thicker oil, in cold weather will actually "glue " the engine parts together..I learned this many years ago with an old 68 pickup..I but 40 wt oil in it and one cold day tried to start it..the block would not turn over at all. not even by hand..had to really put a fire under the truck to warm it up enough to run it..also if your battery is weak..the cold will zap at least 50% of its power due to loss of chemical actgivity inside the battery..in alaska they actually take batteries out of the cars and put them in side to keep them working..in extreme cold the electrolyte acually will separate.. the water in it will freeze and short the battery out..at the present..I use a food warmer turned upside down, under the cars'engine to keep it warm enough to cold start..I carry the heater, a 300 watt reflective unit 2 feet long, and a 100 foot heavy extension cord to plug it in..I also am using 10/30 oil in it ..my car that is..

I have a VW Golf mk3 1995 GTI 16V but it has a weird iddleing whenever I have just started it. When I press the gas pedal more and increase the revs, it gets well. Otherwise if I happen to drive straight...


thats because the car is not at operating temperature.you will get a slight drop in power and drivability until its warm.do not try to use any more than 1/3rd gas pedal until its warm anyway.your car has an automatic cold start device (choke)that operates when the car is cold.

1985 Nissan 720 ext. cab pickup problem


You need to adjust the automatic choke. Your choke may not be opening fully. There is a fast idle cam linked to the choke to keep the throttle open more until the engine is warm. The idle mixture screw is part 37 in the picture, but get the choke adjusted right first, and you may not have to adjust the mixture screw. See adjustment procedures at link beloe.

1998 Chevy Blazer won't start (intermitently)


You will have to find out if it is lacking gas, spark or air first. And here's a tip: Never use ether on a gas engine. That could be the reason it's not starting now. You might be lacking gaskets or valves. Ether... starting fluid is for use on diesel engines only. If you don't know what you're doing on a diesel, you can do more harm than good, and not omnly can you blow your gaskets out, you can blow your head off trying.
