SOURCE: cold start valve problem

if you have an electric cold start valve make sure to unplug it and if keeps apling fuel with electrical conector unpluged that means the valve is not good, but if not then you have an electronic problem, possible a bad cold start sensor or cold start module or cicuit problem, and might be a time to take it to an electrical shop

SOURCE: Won"t start sometimes.

sound like fuel pump pressure low change fuel filter.if that dont fix it . probably fuel pump. if fuel pump good . get a scanner. because a bad coolant sensor cam sensor crank sensor . coil pack module could be bad.also bad pcm.

SOURCE: 2005 Ford E350 Cargo Van Diesel starting problems

These International engines can be difficult to diagnose without the proper tools; namely Ford's I.D.S., or Navistar's DLC.

As for the o-ring the dealer was hinting at, they may have meant the o-ring on the fuel injection pressure regulator. I have witnessed these leak and cause difficult or no starting. This component is located at the rear of the engine below the turbo exhaust supply tubes. A specialty socket is needed to replace it (35mm 12 point socket which resembles an O2 sensor socket), although replacement is most likely unnecessary considering that your vehicle does eventually start. If this were indeed the culprit, your engine would not start. There is a test port next to this regulator to test oil pressure (bolt with allen head relief). A high pressure gauge which reads greater than 5,000 psi is necessary to test at this port. When your engine doesn't start, try checking what the oil pressure is at this port. A minimum of 3,000 psi is needed for the engine to start and 5,000 psi is prefered

Other sources of this problem could be the intake air temperature sensor, oil temperature sensor, or wiring compromises. It's a shame the dealer didn't want to spend the time necessary to pinpoint your problem. So glad I'm out of that crooked industry.

96 xh ute won't start when warm


I would check all the fuses. I pull them and look. This takes care of any corrosion problems. Which sounds like what you have. Also check the main plugs for the coil and injectors for corrosion.

Bad cam shaft senser


You could have a faulty engine coolant sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Fuel injectors clogged or dirty flooding engine.
Clean fuel injectors, replace fuel filter and air filter, and see if the problem persists.
If it does ECT sensor is bad. If CMP sensor was bad, the vehicle won\'t start whether cold or hot. CKP senso and CMP sensor work together if either one fails, the vehicle won\'t start. Have the vehicle code scanned.

Car will start right up when cold go down road dies starts back up once hot shut off starts back up let it set ten min. wont start has spark has fuel pressure put new fuel pump in old pump did same thing...


Could be a relay or other electrical issue.
You say it has fuel pressure and spark, if that were true it should run.
So it either does not have enough spark to fire the plugs under compression, or not enough fuel pressure going thru the injectors, or not at the right time.
You might want to check for trouble codes in the computer.
There has to be something missing from the equation when it won't start. You may have to check all of the plugs for fire and try some carb cleaner sprayed into the intake to boost fuel supply to find the issue.

1992 pontiac bonniville dies & wont start , sets a while then starts like normal. doesnt matter cold or hot


When it doesn't start check for fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse. If you got access to a scanner that could read live data check if you get an RPM reference. Check and report your findings.

Won,t start after sitting for a short time, but will start fine when cold


Does it crank, yet not start? Or does it not even crank?
If it cranks and doesn't start, you could have a leaky fuel injector. Pull the plugs when this happens, and check them for fuel saturation.

If it doesn't even crank, it could be an intermittent starter.

Wont start takes hours to start again


.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap

2002 Yukon Hesitation when starting- No checking engine lights!!


This can be fuel pump related or just fuel filter related, spark plugs and injectors.
When engine is cold vaporization of gasoline is minimum. When fuel vapor is less than required and the fuel mixture is not ideal, ignition happens harder than it does under ideal running conditions of engine. When fuel pups is sweak, or filter is limiting, or fuel injectors are not injecting gasoline with improper pattern inside engine, or just becasue of corroded spark plugs, cold engine faces difficulties during first ignition.

PS: sometimes car starts and stalls.it fails to start once more. this can be a sign of broken crank position sensor. FYI.

97 altima got spark, fuel, compression but won't start


If it won't start while cold, it could be the cold start fuel injector is not working or clogged. Check also for a large vacuum leak which could be diluting the fuel mixture. Check for a bad MAP or MAF sensor.

If it won't start hot, look for leaking fuel injectors or an engine coolant temperature sensor disconnected, the wires to it broken, or a faulty sensor. If the engine coolant temp sensor is stuck at full cold (which it would be if disconnected), it will tell the computer the wrong engine temp and the computer will schedule too much fuel for a hot start leading to flooding.

91 geo metro will start fine when cold but will not start when warm. Would injector cleaner put into fuel help?


Likely not. Check it for spark when its hot. It might be an ignition module or coil problem.
