Hi bob,
what engine ? 2.5L V6 or 2.0 L 4 banger?
does it crank, if it don't crank, its a no crank issue (100% unique)
if it cranks fast, it's a no start and run symptom.
is the gas old?

if it cranks ok, try, a tuneup., ever do a tuneup this decade?
if it cranks ok and it is tuned (spark plugs etc) then try instant start in a spray can.

watch scotty do a true , no start
classic !

I have a 2003 Chevy Suburban dual climate control. temperature will not change from cold to hot.

Hello Daniel,

The main temp sensor that can cause this problem is called a aspirator. The Aspirator and the fan is located under the grill in the head liner above the drivers seat.

The first step in trouble shooting is to scan for fault codes. AutoZone may provide a free scan if you have one of their retail outlets close to your location.

Try this:

With the ignition key in the off position remove all fuses identified for the HVAC,Heater,AC in the fuse boxes located in the passenger compartment and the under hood fuse boxes.

Wait for a few minutes and then reinstall the fuses to their correct locations ( Take a quick picture of the fuse boxes before removing them.)

Turn on the key without starting the engine (do not change any heater or ac settings) Wait a minute or two and then start the engine to confirm proper operation. if the heater and ac operate properly all is well..if not the HVAC scan will provide a starting point to isolate your problem.

I had heads replaced on my 2004 Dodge team 1500 5.7 hemi due to valve and spring issue. Then lifters became very noisy so replaced those also. Truck runs ok but lifters are making noise at start up now...

the hydraulics will leak down after the engine has been stopped for a while . The noise on start up will be until the oil again fills the lifters. If it is getting really cold (under 32F of close to 0 c) then you may have to consider a lighter viscosity grade of engine oil (10w-20 or 15w -30) the manual will have the recommended viscosity of oil for cold areas or you can check with the oil catalogue at any auto parts store.

How do I trouble shoot no start when it's below 32f

First thing that comes to mind is a battery that is still strong but can't make the grade went temperature is as you say. Is this an old battery, is it a no service battery, has the battery been checked for proper fluid levels, has battery been tested with hydrometer. What I'm getting at is get your battery checked. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

05 Lincoln LS 3.0 V6. Outside air temp 32F. Idle decay when cold

This sounds like you have a pcv hose that has become an open vacuum leak. It is located under the upper intake, or given the year your air filter box may not be correctly sealed and possibly have a mass air flow sensor concern. Any Check engine light or codes to work with ? I f you have further questions just leave a comment on my page,

Its because that the engine is very cold, try to worm it up more time before you start driving.
