When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? The engine cranks no start ! Or nothing happens when you the key to start position ? no crank no start ? Is the anti-theft light lit on the instrument cluster (SECURITY) ? If the starter spins the engine does spin slow or normally ? Is there spark , fuel pressure ? Testing these thing's would be the place to start if the engine spins ! Videos on youtube showing how !

Alternator/Electrical??


check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.

The engine is in deed noisy when cold started. But lately, after some rain it really runs rough when fist started in the morning. In french we say that it runs "square". The "check engine light" came on...


Does the engine have a lot of miles(Km) on it--over 100K? If so, try using 'high-mileage' oil in the engine. It will free sticky valve lifters, rings, and soften oil seals. Instead of water sprays, buy a can of 'cold spray' from an electronics parts supply house to test for 'cold' failures--it is more direct and much colder. This may be a humidity problem rather than a temperature problem. I assume that the engine computer was read for any codes stored.

You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.
