This is a diesel I assume.

Before anything else, you have to find out if it is a fuel delivery problem or a glow plug problem or, are your batteries tired? (Not cranking fast enough) Batteries have to be replaced every 3-5 years on a diesel.

1) Check your lift pump. It brings the fuel to the injection pump. It should make a buzzing noise when working. (You can feel the vibration if you put your hand on it.) It should buzz as soon as the key is turned to the on position without having to crank the engine.)

2) Check glow plugs. If the wait light only goes on for two seconds, then your glow plugs are burning out. (The wait light usually is on for at least ten seconds. Longer if it's really cold.)

3) Or the injection pump itself is weak. (Hopefully it's not this, as it can be very expensive to replace. We only want to do this as a last resort.)

Let me know

Several components help a car start: 1) Starter, 2) Battery, 3) Camshaft sensor, 4) Crankshaft sensor, 5) Fuel pump, 6) Coils/Plugs. Start by testing each of those to ensure spark is reaching plugs on a consistent basis. If u can hear fuel pump - and you are sure fuel is in the tank (sometimes the fuel sending unit goes out, making you THINK fuel is there...). Cover each of those, and it should start...if the security system isn't being signaled to stay activated...security can also prevent a start... :-)

On cold days and first start up of the day my 06 Trail blazer has a bad vibration it goes away when i put the truck into neutral only any other gear it gets worse or stays the same. I think its somthing...


Sounds like a classic motor mount / tranny mount issue. Most of the time it will be the motor mount though. The mounts may look ok but they compress over time and they need to keep the motor up higher than it is. Go with OEM mounts (as aftermarkets tend to be too soft and you'll end up having the same problem quickly) , their around $100 each, but a PIA to change.

Bad Injectors most likely. I have a 2006 f-350 and was having the same problem. I ended up changing the fuel pump and 4 injectors.

Should be near the accumulator on the passenger side firewall. The accumulator is the thing that looks like a canister with a clamp around it. It holds the liquid freon for the a/c system and has a blue cap with an L on it.

Seat warmers not working 2005 ford f350


well first of all does the button for the heated seats light up? if so then it is not a fuse problem. usually the heater pad itself. disconnect the connector and check with a ohm meter. if the meter reads open the element is shot. as for the 4 wheel drive will have a wheel hop when turning corners this is normal due to front and rear wheel trying to push in different derections. if it happens all the time the gears in the diff might be different from front to back. check to see if a diff overhaul was done if so.

Intermittent starting problems with 2005 Chevy Colorado pickup...


I've had this problem for about a year now. When this happens, turn key to acc position and leave it for 10 minutes until the pass-lock light either stops blinking or goes out. Then turn off key and restart your truck. I have seen somewhere that if you do this 3 times consecutively, it will re-program the "brain" but I have not tried this yet. Good luck!
