Question about 2000 Mazda 626

1 Answer

My 2001 626 is slow to start when cold. Battery is new and it cranks fine, just takes about 15-20 seconds of cranking before it fires off. Car starts normally when warm and we have tried several types of fuel additives and using gas from a different station.

It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

3.4L Cold start problem--slow cranking/firing--below freezing, now it is around 0


May need a bigger battery if cranking speed is too slow. Thinner oil helps some (like mobil 1) might even consider an engine heater,they are pretty cheap and really work great,saves the engine also.The fuel line deicer is a wise move,especially with the new gasoline these days.

There are several things that few people know about starting cars in cold weather. 1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

I have a 1997 honda crv that crank slow in cold weather.


Slower cranking in cold weather is normal due to the oil being thicker and other tolerances being tighter. As long as the engine fires within 3-5 seconds I wouldn't worry about it. If it cranks REAL slow or is excessively slow to start, I'd tune it up (plugs, wires, distributor cap, etc.) and change the oil to the lowest viscosity recommended. Also, I'd have the battery tested and replaced if it shows marginal.

It's possible that the battery may have a low charge, possibly from leaving a light on or something while you were working on your car. It can also be a sign that your starter may be going bad. You should first have the battery tested to make sure it's charged and that the cold cranking amps are enough to start your car as your battery will loose the cold cranking amps it can produce with age. If it's not the battery and assuming you don't have a check engine light on, it's more than likely going to be your starter at that point. I hope this helps and please vote.
