SOURCE: starts hard when it rains

Try to check distributer cap. It may not be sealing tight as the clips used are notorious for not sealing properly. Also check your wires while you are at it.

fj 60 series 2f and 3f petrol en gines always ,going back to the first of these motors have alway s been a problem to start particularly hot ,over several days fuel can drain back from the fuel pump.BUT I am a liile confused,you say,FJ 62, THAT IS APETROL ENGINE WITH A CARBURETTER. yet you speak of injectors,if it is a DIESELmotor the vehicle is HJ60 with a 2h motor ,if it is a HJ62 then it will have a 12HT TURBO diesel motor,I can tell you where to look to solve the problem no problem at all, but i need an accurate description of the vehicle as they are all different engines

SOURCE: My truck is hard to start after sitting for short

Your fuel pressure regulator is probably bad. It is on the fuel rail. With engine off pull off the vacuum line on the regulator and if fuel runs out then the regulator is bad.

SOURCE: I have a gmc 1500 5.7 1/2 ton truck after sitting

The check valve in the fuel pump may be bad, allowing the gasoline to return to the tank, causing excess cranking to get fuel back to the motor to start.

Losuing over drive lack of power hard starting must hold pedal to the floor


Does it start better after sitting overnight? Is it missing at all? Check engine light? Hard starting could be fuel pump, also lack of power could be lack of fuel. If it starts better after sitting overnight, could be block catalytic converter. That would also explain lack of power. If you have to hold gas pedal half way down trying to get speed would explain why it is not going into overdrive. Hope this gives you some direction.

I can start the motor with the engine heater plugged in,but it starts to stall out a little faster the longer I try to troubleshoot it. I've replaced the fuel filter.


If your talking about a 7.3 diesel then you have injector problems..when they alot of miles on them,they start to lose their oil prime when sitting overnight..Then it causes a hard start or no start..unless you plug it in,and then it will run rough until it get warm..only way to realy diagnos which injectors is to look at scan tool and do some different tests

Fuel?


It may be due to a failed/faulty fuel pressure regulator. I had this problem: easy start when cold, hard starting when warm/hot, and rotten egg smell from exhaust when warm/hot. My mechanic diagnosed a failed/faulty fuel pressure regulator, replaced it, and now the problems (warm hard start, smell) are gone. I have a '92 GT with L4 engine.

Hard starting after sitting awhile


My 98 Jimmy runs on synthetic oil and starts well after sitting in cold weather. If the weather is the problem, try checking that. If it is warm... sorry no ideas.
