SOURCE: Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.

Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.

SOURCE: engine idle trouble

that is not a probelem it is the fuel system warming the engine and turbo
you should always warm up a turbo car before jumping in and taking off and cool the engine before shuting it off turbos are the most temprelental engine part there is. those steps will prolong the life of the turbo and engine. my starion with the g54b 2.6 does the same thing

SOURCE: My esc off light and check engine light both went

I had this exact same problem...turns out it has to do with a recall having to do with the stop lamp switch. I took it to the dealership and it only took about 20 minutes form them to fix it.
Hyundai is recalling 531,894 MY 2006-2007 Accent, Entourage, Sonata, MY 2007 Azera, Elantra and Santa FE, MY 2005-2007 Tucson and MY 2007-2008 Veracruz vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A stop lamp switch malfunction may also affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of the park position. It may also cause the electronic stability control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed. Any of these malfunctions, alone or in combination, may lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. The recall began on April 23, 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-633-5151. This recall was the result of a Preliminary Evaluation conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation.

Astro start hst5224 model


Yessir.
In the old days, because of the ambient temperature's effect on the crankcase oil and the diesel fuel, often two batteries were used to state the diesel in cold weather.
You might see if there is room for an additional battery on the opposite side of the vehicle from the one that is installed now.
The additional battery can be wired parallel with the one already there, which will not increase the voltage, only the starting amps.
I have done this before, several times.
Another choice is an engine heater, which either screws into the block or is installed inside a radiator hose that has been modified for this purpose.
The cord then is plugged in to an outside 110 volt source, and that will heat the motor oil to ease starting.
God bless your efforts.

2004fordtaurus3.0 engine runs rough in cold weather when started. like today in new york 13degee


You know what...there's nothing wrong with your engine...When metal is cold...it contracts...thus causing more friction between moving parts...this is why your motor runs rough in cold weather...I'm gonna give you a crazy suggestion...Have you heard of a "Block Heater"...it is a heated dip stick that you place in your engine overnight..
this device keeps your oil at operating temp overnight...so when you start your car....the block is warm...and the oil flows like magic..just pull out your dipstick...insert the block heater...and rest easy...of course...it has to plugged into a 110 volt outlet...You can find these online by Googleing it or go to www.yourautonetwork.com...Give it a try and let me know....I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

My jeep wont start in cold weather even when it is plugged in. turns over but wnt fire. starts good when the weather warms up. replaced distributor. new battery. new coil.


Sounds like you need to have your ecu repaired. I've seen this problem on 91-98 Grand Cherokees due to components inside the ecu slowly failing, and really acting up when the weather is colder. A good indicator as to if you have this problem is if your check engine light takes a while to light up, on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, before trying to crank the engine. If the light is delayed in your jeep, you need to repair the ecu.

When the weather is very cold (below zero) the car will not even try to turn over it wil only click at the starter and ignition no turn battery is fine never does this any other time. only cold, but once...


It is normal for batteries to lose a good deal of their power due to cold temperatures. If you want better starting power, try using a battery charger/maintainer overnight. It should charge at no more than 2 amps. The slow trickle charging overnight will charge and warm up the battery and allow it to develop full power for a cold morning start.

2001 silverado - My engine knocks for a few


You may have a bad intake manifold gasket, which is leaking the antifreeze in to your engine. Note" Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearings" and the knocking your getting from the engine may be worn connecting rod bearing and the pistons are knocking till it warms up and expands to take up the space the worn bearings created. Replace the faulty gasket, change the engine oil and filter as much as possible to till you address the leak and add Restor engine treatment and Lucas oil treatment for now. This may stop or slow the knocking for now, but your going to have to tear the bottom end down and replace the crankshaft and connecting rod bearings if the knock has not gone away. As the weather starts to get colder, your going to have to warm up the engine before you start to drive, getting hard on the engine while it's still cold may cause the bearing to slip and then your looking at a bigger and more expensive job. Good luck and keep me posted.

1992 GMC Sierra Won't turn over


You either need to charge the battery, or you've got a bad battery. It's easy to power lights and radios, but turning an engine over, especially in cold weather, takes a lot of cold cranking amps (in other words, a fully charged and good battery.).
