Try adding a couple of ounces of acetone to fuel ...it aids in vaporization. If it's a fuel problem that may help. Otherwise check for mechanical problems.

Drove our 2002 F550 Diesel...shut it off and it would not restart. The dash lights do not come on and the motor cranks fine.... just won't start. Robbie


If the dash lights don't come on then the ignition key switch is no powering the electronics and the diesel pump cutoff solenoid - there is no way for the engine to start.
You need to replace the ignition switch

For that the steering column will have to be dismantled - it's a quite complicated job and if you have never done something like that before you should leave it to a repair shop. Anyone will do, no need for a dealer's shop.

New battery, new fuel pump. All electrical systems work fine, every time the outside temp is less than 30 degrees, vehicle will not start. Turns over fine, just will not start.


Have a block heater installation the day light things warm up at night it gets really dry cold that's when the block heater keeps the engine warm enough to start.

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time


Your problem is a faulty heater control valve. The design used on these vehicles allows for hot water to flow constantly and compete with the evaporator as there is no blender door. You have to replace the valve and possibly the control head. Meanwhile, you can bypass the valve to have cold air

In cold weater hard starting need to cycle through intake heater


i will suggest to have ford repair these because they can be a pain. and as far as hookin up a computer it wont help much because you really need a check engine light to come on.
hope this helps you decide.

1992 F-350 Dsl - very hard to start when cool


are you using cold temperature engine oil!
if not, try changing oil for cold temperature!

hard starting happens due to the cold temperature, air pressure is low during this season so compression inside the engine is low resulting to hard starting!

make sure that all your glow plugs are working.

02 galant heater not working


As me and my stepdad just discovered, the Galant came with an added feature to help the AC use less energy, by placing a heater valve within the dashboard. After pulling about 10-12 screws and half the dashboard apart, we simply opened the valve permanently. Many cars out there work that way all the time. Now after changing those lousy clamps into actual hose clamps by the firewall, my wife enjoys cool air in the summer and heat the whole winter. Hope this helps, there is a site that will actually show you a video of putting dash back together, as author did not film the disassembly.
