Check the Coolant Temperature Sensor - might be defective (lies to the computer ECM). You see, the coolant temperature sensor tells the ECM (computer) what the engine temperature is... if it's defective (telling the computer that the temp is -40 deg, then the computer will raise the fuel mixture for that temp. If, for example, the sensor is telling the computer that the temp is 200 deg, then the computer will 'LEAN' the fuel mixture.. get my meaning?

What Systems draw power when the car is off?


Have to do a Parasitic Current Drain Test, to find
the circuit with the fault,then component test items
in that circuit

You have a module,relay or other item, not timing out
or going to sleep

You can have failed switches in the doors,failed alternator
diodes,many things that can cause that

Even the Evap System, which on some cars, run tests while
your sleeping, can be at fault

Check for OBD Codes in all Modules, with professional scan tool,
then do the drain test, leaving the doors closed

Car overheats


There could be many causes for a small leak, including foreign debris, small crack or loose hose. Using just water with no antifreeze can damage your radiator in sub 32 temps so always mix with coolant/antifreeze. One temp solution is buying stop leak from a auto part store, another remedy I've heard work is putting black pepper (finely ground) in your system to stop small leaks and it actually works. Good luck.

Battery not charging message. Took battery to have tested was told battery good. I charge battery every night and starts next morning last about 10-15 mins driving. I am not getting service 4wheel drive...


Most likely you have a bad alternator. The alternator maintains the the charging system. you have the option to remove the alternator and take it to the parts store and have it tested too!.

Cold start? Won't start?


assuming its only starting cold in the morning after sitting all night. try plugging it in at night. if your suv doesnt have a plug-in buy a block heater from your local hardwear store and that should fix your problem.

Honda Accord 1994 V4 LX: Starting problems in the morning


There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.

Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.

And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.

Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.

Your gas cap on tightly?

Good luck with your problem.
