You would need to test your fuel pressure and use a scan tool to look at the data for the coolant and Intake air temp sensor to see if they are acurate. The engine requires more fuel when the engine gets that cold and it sounds like it's not getting it.

My truck back fires in the mrng why


check the engine coolant temp sensor. this sensor regulates fuel until the engine warms up. if the sensor is telling the ECM that the engine is warm on start up then it leans the fuel control out.

Cold weather starting problem


I would say it's bad contacts in the ignition switch. Metals change dimensions depending on temperature, looks like 45 degrees is the trick point for whatever is in there. My 04 Silverado 5.3 with 196,000 has the ticking, but it is gone within 10-15 seconds.

98 astro awd doesnt like to start in real cold weather (-18C) otherwise runs fine


I have a 98 and we just had a cold snap where it was super cold and I didn't start it for about a week. I had just got a new battery because mine tested out bad. Everything was good but now it doesn't want to get fuel. Cleaned all battery and relay connections and it's turning over great and fires with starting fluid but won't start. Guy at Napa said the fuel pump on these are known to not work well in the cold and suggested to warm the tank. I'm parked outside and can't move it to get it inside somewhere. Anyone know of good solution to this fuel pump not working in cold temps issue?

2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

Hard starting diesel, at approxamately anytime temp gets below 45 degrees F. runs rough when started, smokes, then once warmed up no problem. Has quit on me twice in traffic.


only 2 things can maake a diesel run rough at start up ,,1--- air in the system 2----- 1 or more of the glow plugs not working. this sounds like the latter ,if you have a couple of glow plugs not working ,it will miss on those cylinders until it warms up ,and the smoke is mostll exesive fuel when it does fire . recommend you check the glow plugs
