Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My 1999 Explorer with 104,000 miles would not start this morning in 37 degree weather. Never a problem before. After waiting until it got warmer outside, it started right up. Very smooth too. Any ideas?

1999 chev malibu. trans wont shift while driving. stays in one gear. 50 mph at 3500 rpm. car was drive without fuses 37 38-at fuse prior to problem. put fuses back and no change.


With the fuses in, disconnect the battery overnight to reset the ECU. In the morning, put the key in the ignition and reconnect the battery. Wait 15 minutes for the ECU to initialise.

Those are Oxygen Sensor Codes, you can google
& look up

They need to be replaced every 100,000 miles, but won't
cause a no start condition or be effected by outside temp

Spark Plugs -- have to be replaced every 3 years,can't just
drive until you have a problem

Sounds like lack of Preventative Maintenance to me

Too many items to check or test ,to go into here

Had 04 transit connect for 6 weeks. always started fine till week ago when turned cold. glow plug light only shows for about 1 second, replaced glow plugs but still the same. can only start every morning...


Sounds like the timer is bad. Since you have power when warm, the power relay must be giving the timer juice. The way it is suppose to work is you wait until the glow plug light goes out and then try to start. In cold weather it should take longer for the glow plug light to go out.

1995 ford escort will not restart after driving on hot days until you wait 4 hours


You may want to replace your crankshaft position sensor. They tend to "open" the circuit when they get heated after they have begun to wear out.

replace the idle air control valve, does it start if you step on gas pedal, and when it starts does it idle up and down and stall sometimes if so then replace that valve, good luck.

Cuts off in warm weather after about 10 miles


Don't rule out fuel pump. Had a 95 do the same, ran great when cool in morning then when it got hot in afternoon, it would quit. Wait 15-20 minutes & go again, sometimes got me home, other times a few more miles until it cooled down again. Luckily I had access to a fuel pressure gauge. Cool in morning had 49 psi, when it quit, 2 psi. Wait 20 minutes, 49 psi again. If you can drive it around until it starts to act up then run into a repair shop for fuel pressure test it will confirm it. If not, they may need it all day to monitor the fuel pressure & confirm it is pump. If your a gambler, change it & fuel filter. One thing I did get was trouble codes indicating a lean mixture, due to starving for fuel. Have you cycled your key to retrieve any codes yet?

1998 S-10 cold start


The cold weather wreaks havoc on everything. I am thinking that the cold weather and your octane rating are not getting along, hence no error codes. Have you tried fuel drier and or octane booster?Since the truck starts when the temperature gets warmer, I would look at octane as the culprit. Try some octane booster and see if that helps. Let me know. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
