Long cranking indicates a problem with part of the fuel pump assembly or the need for an air filter / tune-up. A restricted fuel filter also reduces fuel pressure to the injectors slowing cranking.

High mileage? Try a few bottles of Gum-out with a tank of gas, not the expensive stuff, just the regular fuel injector cleaner, then repeat & see if it improves. If it does, that would indicate Injectors and or fuel filter.

good luck

Cold start problems but when started runs fine bought new battery,spark plug ,ht lead,cap


Did you check to see if fuel is getting to injectors on cold startup! If you have starting problems and the "check engine" light doesn't come on, you may have a bad engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT). Good-Day

Starter goes click click and it won't start - seems worse in cold weather(-30c) . . warm weather it starts fine. When this first started happening I was able to get it to run by giving it a boost . . . ....


check the cable to starter for good contact, your starter probably is fine but the starter selonoid is probably bad as long as all power and ground cables are clean and have good contact.

I have trouble starting my van when its is cold. after that its fine. the colder it is the longer it takes to start.


Not an unusual problem.....

Most important- tune-up! Make sure your plugs, distributor cap and rotor (if so equipped), air and fuel filter are OK and have been changed (at minimum) according to your owner's guide.

If your vehicle cranks over slow when cold-starting, consider a new battery. In cold weather, batteries lose efficiency, and older batteries lose more power than new ones.

Next... Gas - the fuel in cold weather states has a formula change in winter months to lower emissions- sometimes going to the next higher grade of fuel (example: from regular to mid-grade) helps.

If you have a garage, keeping the vehicle inside makes a huge difference with cold weather starting.

Keep your fuel tank full. Running the tank down and leaving it near empty most of the time allows condensation, which will result in getting water in your fuel, leading to hard starts and poor performance, and the increased risk of "rusting through" which will cause a leaky fuel tank.

My car will not start in cold weather. i have change the plug wires and all the plugs. IT wasn't like this but now is getting worse expecially in the morning after the car has been sitting for over night....


I live in the snow belt and have had the same problem for two years. Car runs and starts fine in the summer but starts giving problems when it gets cold and damp. After having it diagnosed with no problems indicated, then having the plug wires, plugs, etc. replaced, I discovered that if I put the key in the ignition, turn it two clicks and leave it for several minutes it will start and run fine. When it's just cool and damp, it may only take 2 mins. but the colder the weather the longer it takes. At 9 degs. it took about 20 mins. Hope this helps. It's a very expensive and frustrating problem that no one seems to know anything about.

2001 ford 250 s/dv-10turns over fine. wont start sometimes.when it starts it runs fine.seems like cold weather makes it worse.if it starts it wont die.started about a month ago and getting worse.


Make sure the battery doesn't have a dead cell or is over two years old first. Then depending on usage I would definately think about getting a new starter. I would suspect your battery first, due to the cold weather corrolation.

My mercedes e300 (1989) starts and runs ok but then cuts out.


I had a similar problem with my 1986 300e , which got progressively worse until the car was no longer driveable, I changed out the fuel pump relay and the problem went away.

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
