Bottom falls out of idle after revving engine cold


Its probably a problem with the water temperature sensor. Also do not rev a cold engine. The engine has a "cold start sequence" which is similar to a choke. When the engine gives a cold signal, the fuel mix is made richer and the timing is changed until the engine warms.

Let the engine warm at the preset factory settings. Sometimes the O2 sensors will cancel the cold start sequence before the water is warm. Racing the engine will warm the O2 sensors too quickly.

I don't know what kind of oil goes in a 2004 dodge stratus 2.7l engine


As for the viscosity of oil to use, most new engines today require a multiviscosity 5W-30 oil for all-round driving. The lighter 5W-30 oils contain friction reducing additives that help improve fuel economy, and also allow the oil to quickly reach critical upper valvetrain components when a cold engine is first started. Most engine wear occurs immediately after a cold start, good- day!!

2003 alero, won't start in the morning, unless i spray quick start into the intake, then it will start,, there is fuel pressure and good spark, when i get it running,, it will start up all day long,,,, but...


Next time it happens, turn the key to the "on" position. See if you can hear the fuel pump engaging, sending fuel up to the motor. If not, you have a fuel pump issue. It doesn't seem often this happens, but when a vehicle is started, the fuel pump feeds gas to the engine. After the engine is started, it's more of a pressure thing, letting the fuel just flow. It may not be getting that extra push, when the pump is cold.

I hope this helps, let me know if I can be of any more assistance! :)

Have a 98 honda crv that seems to have a starter that hangs on occasion when the temperatures outside are very cold, the only time it does this, and only then on occasion, once the engine is warm no...


If it's only happening erratically (cold) your seem to be describing a faulty starter, or even ck the relay if avail. Starter, most probable.

Engine knocks on cold startup


Sorry for this, but usually if the engine knocks on cold start then goes away shortly, it's a sign of a rod bearing. This is just one explanation but in any case it needs checked QUICKLY! This isn't a normal sound and can only lead to bad things if not fixed.

Engine stalls. 4 times engine stalls, let sit for


sounds to me that there could be an engine temperature switch that is malfunctioning or not working at all. the temperature switch tells the engine that its cold and that the fuel injection system should operate in cold mode. the switch then tells the computer to start the engine in cold mode. if it malfunctions, the engine controlling unit confuses itself and then cuts off. this is an early sign of that unit failing until the car won't start at all. it's just wear and tear and time that does these things. a good mechanic should help you out quick and should be a couple of ours work. good luck

HARD TO START ENGINE WHEN IS VERY COLD


I read the other two solutions top your problem and I have to say, some people should not give advice, because the advice they are giving is not worth anything. NOW, let me tell you what is wrong with your car. You have a defective IAC (Idle Air Control) value. The IAC value (sometimes called a cold start value) is used as a means to quickly start your car when it is cold outside. Replace the IAC (easy to do) and your problem will be solved..
