You shouldn't have any more trouble on cold start than you do after warm-up. I feel your only problem here is just a weak battery, or possibly only dirty terminals on the battery. I'd clean terminals first, then have your battery load tested to see how good it comes back up.

2001 dodge caravan tries to start,but doesnt crank until the 3/4th crank. any ideas? new battery


Do you mean it doesn't start right away? Or does it take 3 or 4 attempts to start up? If it's turning over your battery is fine. If it's not firing that could be a whole bucket load of problems.

Having trouble sttaring cold takes many attempts


white smoke points to a head gasket issue, If your coolant is low and smells and looks weird then get the car tested to be sure.

04 f250 6l diesel cranks but will not start when cold.


it seems that because it sit's for a while that perhaps it's losing it's prime. if ythis happens generally you will have to reprime the fuel system. in a diesel system you also have glow plugs to help ignite the fuel. check to make sure your glow plugs work, but i would start with whether you have proper prime in the fuel system.. please rate this

Problems when starts..


Turn your key on for 10 seconds but do not start the engine. That will give the fuel pump time to built pressure. After the 10 seconds try starting the engine. If it starts right away you may have a weak pump or dirty filter.
