1991 olds 88 cranks fine when cold but after a long drive and I turn off engine and try to restart it cranks slow like a weak battery. I put a new battery in and cleaned the battery connections but it still does the same thing.

Put a wrench on the front of the engine and see if it will turn, almost sounds like you threw a rod or the timing belt broke. Either one is not good news

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

It sounds like your battery is weak. How old is it? More than 3 years.. should be changed..

When weather is mild, it's fine. As it gets colder, not only does the oil thicken up and require more effort to move, but the battery puts out less amperage. If battery is fairly new.. there is still enough power to crank engine. But if battery starts off weak, and then is near frozen, and a higher than usual demand is placed on it... (very cold oil) and in addition it needs to supply power for a strong spark..

You may note that many commercials for auto batteries emphasize COLD cranking amps..
Note that it's possible the starter is also weak, but you say it cranks over just fine if it's still slightly warm... A new battery should do the trick.

Service light comes on 270 000 km car dies while driving put new plugs, lot of the time ahave to turn key 20 times then she starts


Hello,

The problem with car starting is not only related with the plug, it also have to do with the battery sometimes, when the battery does not hold a charge, then the car will take long to start. While trying over time the battery is trying to pick a little charge to be able to come on.

If your engine has a carburetor, the hard starting problem is most likely choke related. If the engine cranks normally and the spark plugs are not worn or dirty, the choke probably needs to be repaired or adjusted.
The choke may be set too rich or too lean. Either way can cause hard starting. Inside the choke housing is a bimetal spring that regulates the tension on the choke according to temperature. If this spring is broken, the choke will not operate. If the choke linkage is rusty or jammed with varnish deposits or dirt, it may stick or not operate smoothly. Cleaning with carburetor spray or solvent may help alleviate a sticking problem.
On older fuel injected engines, a separate "cold start" injector is used to spray additional fuel into the intake manifold when a cold engine is first started. If this injector is not working, the engine can be hard to start. The injector is controlled by a timer and relay, so if either of these components is defective it can prevent the cold start injector from doing its job, too.
If your engine cranks slowly, your cold starting problem is not fuel related, but may be due to a weak battery, loose or corroded battery cables, or a weak starter.
Check for obvious problems first. Remove, clean and inspect the battery cables (both ends). Then check battery charge and condition. (More information on the condition of your battery and battery recharging is available.) If the battery charge is low, recharging the battery may temporarily solve your problem. But there's a reason why your battery is low. You probably have a charging system problem that requires further diagnosis. (More information on alternator is also available.) If your battery is more than four or five years old, it is probably near the end of its service life and needs to be replaced. A "load test" will tell you if it still has sufficient cranking capacity to provide reliable cold starting.
Slow cranking during cold weather (below freezing) can also be caused by oil that is too thick. A high viscosity oil such as straight 30 or 40 weight oil in the crankcase can make an engine very difficult to crank when the temperature drops. Switching to a lighter multiviscosity oil such as 10W-30 or 10W-40 should solve this problem.

Take care and good luck

Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

Engine dies at 150 degrees.


sounds like its not accident related, more like a idle air control motor or something of that nature, ive also herd of this happening when the crank sensor is going bad, it warms up and starts missing the signal.
