Might be a dirty IAC idle air control valve. When starting up and it is struggling to idle does the car have a tendency to cut out if for example you turn the front wheels or put a foot on the brakes. If so, this looks like an IAC problem. Generally the fix is very easy and just requires the IAC to unbolted from the throttle body and cleaned with carburettor choke cleaning spray and then wiped down with a cloth. Once cleaned like new check the IAC ports on the throttle body itself and clean these. Make sure that everything dries off, reassemble and that should be it

Why my mitsubishi lancer with 4G92 engine wont start in the mornings


Could be something different, but. Try turning the key on and off 3 or 4 times before starting it. If it starts right up, the check valve is bad on the fuel pump. It can't be replaced with out the pump unit.

Hard to start on cold mornings but starts fine when warm


The cold start valve is not operating correctly. Either the engine coolant temperature sensor is bad or the cold start valve itself is bad. You can check the engine coolant temperature sensor by going to radio shack or any electronic store and purchase a 15k ohm or higher resistor. Disconnect the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECTS) harness. Bridge the 2 female spade connections in the harness with the resistor. Start the engine. If the engine starts you need to replace the ECTS. If the engine is still hard to start, you need to remove the cold start valve, (wear safety goggles, and whatever you do don't smoke) place the cold start valve in a glass and have someone crank the engine. You should see gas coming out from the cold start valve. If not take a ohm meter and measure the terminal at the cold start valve after disconnecting the wire harness. The meter should read 25 ohms. If it doesn't replace the cold start valve.

NO START , COLD


have local auto parts store check the battery, it may have a couple bad cells, which would reduce cranking amps... would still have enough to run lights etc., but just not enough juice to start the car...
