Usually its colder in the morning so it could be the battery doesnt have enough cold cranking amps or the battery is going bad. maybe. over heating could be a number of things make sure the fans go on half way up the gauge. but u should start by changing the thermostat its cheap,easy n should be changed yearly

I have a 1997 Chevy cavalier that doesn't start when the weather is cold it will not start early in the morning but will in the afternoon


If it runs normally except for that problem, I would suspect the coolant temperature sensor. The sensor may not be reporting the coolant temperature properly when it is very cold and then the ECM will not provide enough fuel to start the engine (basically you have no choke). Once it warms up a bit, then it starts ok and runs well.

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

98 chevy cavalier turns over but won't start


i know industry jargon can be confusing, but lets try this. if it turns over but won't start, it could be your ''ignition module'' that sits on top of the vave cover on the motor or it might be the fuel pump or filter. make sure when you crank the engine that the key is all the way turned or it may not always make a proper contact to activate the ignition module. iv'e seen this before & had to change the ignition switch & all worked ok after that. i would need to know engine lt size to give you more details on the matter. please get back to me.

Crank sensor. Next time it does this spray some water on it and see if it cranks. Its by the crankshaft pulley towards front of car.

Will not start


You need to check for spark. You could have got water into your ignition coil or distributor cap area and cause it not to spark. It could also be a problem with a crankshaft position sensor.Another possiblity is the asd relay or Autoshutdown relay bad. that realy is in your fuse box underhood. Hope this helps.
