Question about 1995 Ford F250

1 Answer

My 92 f250 7.3 is next to impossible to start at temps below about 70*F, and at freezing I have to use starting fluid to start it. Any ideas on what is wrong? Does it have a choke?

2012 Juke CVT issue when below freezing temps


I wonder if the fluid level is a little low. As it warms up it expands a little, and when you shut it off and start again, the level is up because it's still warm. System resets and all is good until next time.
Or maybe there is an electrical issue. I say this because it's intermittent.

Engine wont fire after over heating n freezing up over nite did fire after thawing out with no leaks


I am thinking that the coolant froze in the block and now you have major problems in the engine . Have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracks

Shifter moves with moderate effort, but car does not shift out of first gear on a 91 cavalier...is that shift linkage bending? wont shift to second ,etc, running or not. will the linkage from a 92 sunbird...


IT IS HARD TO SAY WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, 1ST YOU REPAIR ANY SHIFT LIKAGE ISSUES THEN YOU MOVE ON TO THE TRANS IF THE PROBLEM STILL ISN'T CURED, THE 92 LINKAGE WILL NOT WORK.

91-92 talon hard to nearly impossible to start


Just an idea, but I think that you are onto something with the temperature sensor. If overheating was the cause of the head gasket to go, then I would imagine it would've fried the temperature sensor also. That would make it nearly impossible to start. The sensor should be fairly cheap enough to replace. Probably wouldn't even through out a code. My Mother-in-Law had the same problem with her Saturn, changed the temp. sensor and BINGO. No more problem. You just have to make sure you get the computer temperature sensor, not the fan temp. sensor. There are 2 of them suckers. Believe it or not. Hope this can help "with your idea". Best wishes.

1992 Chevy Lumina will not start when temp is below 0 degrees


Try changing the fuel filter, water trapped in it can freeze. Its a 92 and probably time for a fuel pump. They don't like water either.(Meythonol Fuel) Always change fuel filter when adding antifreeze to fuel

Not starting in the cold


it might be because the oil is too thick to do its job or you fluids (gas,oil,coolant hopefully not) are freezing try putting a work light under your hood at night and see if the car starts in the mornings. Depending on how cold it gets a worklight used to work for me up near flagstaff az,
