2007 Toyota Tacoma v6. Hard to start about 1 hour after initial cold start, longer cranking. Problem?


Is the check engine light on? How long has it been since the engine was tuned up? A worn plug that is "hot soaked" can create a longer cranking time. Hot soaked means it may have some un-burned fuel in the cylinder since the first cold start. A weak or worn plug has a harder time getting this fuel burned out of the cylinder when more fuel is being added during a warm start.

My 1999 f250 superduty 7.3 starts right up when cold but hard to start after it is warm and surges while driving at 55 mph. it does have a 6 speed ******.


There may be more than 1 problem. The Timer for the Glowplugs adjusts itself for the temperature of the engine and surrounding air temperature. It is suppose to keep the timer going longer for a cold engine than a warm one. But it does need to heat the Glowplugs to atomize the fuel, then compression takes over.

If the Glowplugs have not been inspected lately, it would be a good time to do it. To test, use a jumper cable with care not to damage the threads of the Glowplug. Usually clamp one end of the jumper on the base of the Glowplug and briefly touch the top where the wiring plugs in.

The Glowplug can melt, but you want to see it glow in a short period of time and uniformily with all 8. Any that stay dark are bad, subpar will take longer than you have and will not fully atomize the fuel before they lose power from the timer.

Another problem can be the gating in the Turbo. There should be clean passages for the valving to seal when the Turbo closes. If the Turbo does not close, the exhaust compression may leak into the cylinder too early before a fuel charge is atomized. Since the Glowplugs are barely on for a hot engine, it will complicate starting.

Since your engine starts great when cold, fuel line integrity and the fuel system should not be a problem. Surging at 55mph is probably due to the Turbo.

Check your Vacuum levels at a convenient tap and see if the Vacuum bleeds off quickly or holds pressure for awhile.

Please rate my info and I hope I have been helpful.

Ecm? how to diagnose if its failing? will it have a hard time starting? does it have anything to do with how that starter would keep turning over when the key released before but not now?


Its very rare to have an ECM go bad and still have the vehicle start and run.

The vehicle will start itself meaning if you turn the key to the crank position and let go the engine will continue to crank until it start. This is completely normal.

If you have an extended crank condition where it takes longer than normal to start the vehicle especially after a hot soak (the engine is fully warmed up, you swing into target for 20 minutes, and then try to start and it takes longer). This is usually caused by loss of fuel pressure. Two common problems that cause this are the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump.

I take out the wire sparkplus and don`t how put back on 1984 econoline 350


You can look up firing order or get me the engine size so I can help you. Also is your van a 1999 or 1984 1 ton?
Your parts store has your firing order.
Next time do 1 at a time so not to mix up the wires.
30+ years ago I did the same thing I learned the hard way too. Once you get the firing order and start position line up your wires short to the front and longer to the back on a 84 v8 with a distributor. E-350 could have a small or big block V-8 or a 6 cylinder

Kia sportage 2000 engin chech signal come but not go hard start


If the vehicle was running hot it will continue to overheat until you locate a coolant leak and repair or replace the leaking part. It is critical you do not wait to repair this. You must first add water to your cooling system before you can troubleshoot the problem. Add the water while the vehicle is cooled down. If the vehicle is having trouble starting it is possible that you have allowed the engine to run hot too long. You could also have a head gasket leak from the motor. This could let coolant leak into the oil and you can check your oil and find a milky white substance that is a mix of coolant and oil. If that is the case you need to take the vehicle to a motor repair shop. To troubleshoot leaking cooling system get or borrow a cooling system leak check kit. It screws on in place of the radiator cap, you pump it up and use a flourescent light to then look in the engine compartment under the hood for a dripping green coolant leak. Good luck.

Hard starting with check engine light and hold light on


If your check engine light is on, take the car to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. Usually it is free. The fault code will tell you where to start to solve the problem. Hope this helps.

Heater takes forever to start blowing hot air


You probably have a bad thermostat - the one that controls water flow to the radiator. It's supposed to stay closed until the engine reaches proper operating temperature. But when they fail, it's usually in the open position so the water circulate to the radiator all the time. The engine takes longer to warm up, and you shiver in the meantime. It does eventually get hot - it just takes a lot longer. I bet if you replace that thermostat you'll be toasty in no time. As for the cigarette lighter, your portable heater may have blown the fuse.
