Hi, no to injectors, gas or module because if it were any of these, you would have same problem after car is on running. If you have more than 75,000 miles and don't know when the last time the spark plugs, or fuel filter was replaced, I would suggest having these changed by a mechanic. DON'T change the spark plugs yourself. These engines are notorious for "blowing" out spark plugs if not properly torqued. And if that happens, it will cost you an engine head if the shop can't re-tap your spark plug hole threads. Try having a reputable shop replace the spark plugs and fuel filter.

2006 Navigator air suspension works fine until the weather gets cold then after the vehical sets over night some times the front suspension will be down.The bags don't appear to be leaking and the problem...

I suggest you remove most of that Air System and
replace with conventional shocks/struts etc

You will spend a few thousand, before you take my advice,
if you continue to try and diagnose those issues.

It is a system not worth working on

Read other peoples problems and a few I offered that
idea to, and they were happy to switch over, at any cost,
so they could use their veh again

My 97 lincoln town car won't start. it's cold out. would taking the battery inside be a good idea to warm it up?

Your battery is usually challenged in cold weather, you are much trouble to remove to take in to warm up...Do you have a battery charger? My suggestion would be to jump start your Lincoln with another car battery...this will assure that your battery is not further damaged by being under charged in cold to assure charging system ie alternator is working...taking the battery inside to warm will help to save your battery if it is just low on charge...taking inside will not ncecessarily re-charge your the summer, sometimes leaving hood up with sun on battery will slightly re-charge a low battery...:)

Takes a extreme amount of time to "warm up" when starting in cold weather. Spits and spurts for a number of miles during cold weather starts. Problem does not appear when the outside ambient temp is very...

very likely to be the thermostat needs replacing(to test,wrap a piece of cooking foil around the radiator/front grill and see if the heatup time is less,if it is, then its the thermo.) easy,yes.....

2001 Ford windstar stalling problems. After

have your idle speed sensor cleaned,also checkd the air flow sensor located in the air cleaner housing,you best bet is to have it scanned for PCM soft codes(codes that wont turn on the check engine light on)

94 Lincoln TC engine stalls when slowing/stopping

Most common cause of stalling for Lincolns in that era is the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). It regulates fuel mixture, idle speed etc. A bad TPS will usually act up in one of two ways:
  1. When cold, car continually stalls
  2. When warm, car stalls when slowing down (especially if AC is on)
As far as valve cover oil leak, it's a problem that should be addressed to keep oil from fouling your spark plugs but highly unlikely to be the cause of your stalling problem. Hope this answers your question. All the best.

2001 f250 7.3 diesel cold weather starting

this sounds like a fuel contamination problem Assuming you have allready ck that glow plugs are all working add a few cans of dewater to tank and drive it a bit change fuel supplier

a simple way to see if glow plugs are even trying to work is right after wait to start lite goes out look at voltmeter on dash if it's not bouncing a bit there not working

glow plugs preheat the combustion chamber so cold fuel will fire off

also that truck might also have the fuel heater internal to filter housing
installed that might be burnt out as well OHM meter will tell you if so

2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L.. In cold Weather it starts then stalls and dies...?

Inlet air temperature sensor, also known as throttle body temperature sensor, will do that. Don't go changing TPS, or IAC, as suggested in other post. If they work good in warm weather, they should do the same in cold. Air inlet sensor tells system how much fuel to deliver according to temperature, as engine needs more fuel the colder it is when starting.

cable is fine,can be the tps but try tapping on the idle air valve and see if the idle kicks up,it works like a choke and if its stuck its a big vac leak
