If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the car's computer for any fault codes stored there. Most parts stores will do the scan for free and getting the codes will show what faults in the car's systems the computer has identified. It could be something like a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes should end speculation and help narrow down the problem. Hope this helped and best wishes.

1992 Lexus S300 Automatic. Car drive perfectly fine. Problem is sometime when I start the car, it should idle and shut off within 5 seconds. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. Sometimes it d


Without any other symptoms it is hard to diagnose; could be water in the fuel or a plugged up air filter, that effects idle first, take it out and see if it idles fine, if so get a new one. Take out fuel filter and dump in a glass bowl and analyse for water... get a new one... Is it different when the engine i hot or cold?

89 dodge shadow. hard start. normal idle cold, fast idle warm. sometimes it wont start until i hear fuel pump activate.


Hello,
The car may be hard to start because it may need a normal tune-up. If the spark plugs are pretty used, they will slowly stop burning as much fuel because the spark slowly gets lesser and lesser. On a cold day the fuel is harder to ignite with a small amount of spark.
Normal idle when its cold means that your cars idle is probably too high. If you lower the idle, the choke on a cold day will keep the idle a little higher until the motor warms and then it will kick back off. If the idle is too high, it will run very rich, smothering itself with fuel, and causing the idle to stay low. When the car warms, its creating better spark when its warm, and with the idle being too high its running at a fast idle.
The car wont start sometimes can be the cause of a few things. If the ground is bad on the fuel pump, it wont make a good connection sometimes for when you turn the key on, the fuel pump dont pump the fuel to the engine. Another one can be that your accessory switch can be loose going to the fuel pump. I think its your ground though. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Have a nice day. -Steve
