Drive you vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone and they will do a FREE SCAN on your Outbacks computer. That will show what codes are causing the check engine light to come on. They will advise what is needed plus they can quote you prices on most anything for it too

I have a 2007 monte carlo v6 an having trouble staring when its cold outside.


Check engine light on? Have the codes read. Codes help, but just some times it has to be on a scanner to see what the engine and sensors are doing.

Most of your discription would indicate a bad starter,
if your talking about the engine turning over or cranking

Some people call a no start or no ignition, a not cranking
situation, which is a wrong statement.

You may have a bad fuel pump, if the motor turns
over but won't start.

Does the 2002 regal have a cold motor sensor Car hard to start when cold motor (in the morning )


Your vehicle uses the coolant temp sensor and the intake air temp sensor to determine the engines temperature on a cold start. If one of them is dramatically different than the other it will flag a code.

Is the check engine light on?

When was the last time you had a tune-up? if recently what brand of plugs where used?

Have you noticed any hard start issues after a hot soak? A hot soak would be driving the car until fully warmed up, shutting of the engine for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and then starting the engine again.

Staring issue... 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder(manual tran). recently I've noticed that in the morning or after it's sat for while, when I turn the key the engine cranks for a couple of seconds before...


instead of cranking, just leave key on for a minute...if there isn't a delay starting after that it may be a bad drainback valve in the pump. You can either live with it for a while or replace pump...but check that it's not an injector leaking into engine first.(usually if that's the case, leaving key on will lengthen start time and give a puff of black smoke on startup)
