Car wont start when it gets cold out


You don't say whether it is petrol or diesel engined or whether the engine is cranking fine but won't fire.

Certainly an engine must crank quick enough but even then if it is the best diesel engine ever made it is unlikely to start below freezing without an artificial starting aid. Such an aid is already installed but must be in good condition. Heater plugs do fail sometimes or get tired and lazy so they need checking and sometimes the timer relay fails to switch them on. Good injector spray patterns are also needed for good starting.

Petrol engines need enrichment of the fuel/air mixture for cold starting and a very good spark at the plugs. Worn spark plugs is the most common cause of poor starting and if the ECU isn't getting the right information about temperature it will be unable to make the correct fuel adjustments.
A good injector spray pattern is also important.

Lots to think about...

I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee, It started


wow, no engine option stated, and no DTCs.

4.0L I-6 or 4.7Liters?

WHY DO THAT FIRST. $$$$ parts first.

why not do a tune up first.

you swap in the most expensive parts first? ouch,

The PCM tells you when ckp or cmp fail, with DTC codes

so its not that. but you never posted ALL DTC errors. why not do that.?

do a real tuneup? heat (spark plugs, filters.)

if you have P030x errors,

eg: p0301 is cylinder #1 is misfiring (3 ways to do that not JUST spark)

eg: P0300, random on all cylinders. (fuel mix wrong) or never tuned up.



Misfire 101; (example P0301 DTC)

P030x codes, are all just about spark, misfire is caused by 3 things, (at least)

1: sure spark. weak. (tuneups work as does hV wires sets if no COPS) if 1 cop is bad move it to other location, does failure follow the move>???????? buy new cop boots if engine has cops.

COPS means coil over plug, so v6 has 6, v8 has 8.

coil packs have 3 coils inside for v6 and 4 for V8. called wasted spark to any tech.

2: low compression, think of your v6 (is it) as 6 engines, not 1.

3: wrong FUELING rates. including air leaks to 1 cylinder.

if engine has EGR that too, will cause gross misfiring.

so can an air leak near one intake runner, causing 1 cylinder to misfire.





why not scan it with a real scan tool that can see ALL jeep codes

then post all DTCs found. both idling and driving for 45mph or 1/2hr.

with these facts and what engine is there we can do the remaining tests.

free book



http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service







The tune up is this and filters.

do the tune up, new wires, and plugs using correct spark plugs not some bs, magic ones, use spec, plugs first. its in the manual.

then HV wire set on 4.0L,

if cops V8 , 4.7L try new boots on them. or swap them to find bad one.

the USA car V8 has coil on plugs





misfire means ONLY that this cylinder has weak COMBUSTION

its not weak spark only, that is only 1 cause of poor combustion.



post DTC\'s driving and we can fix it

the best tool is the

Innova 3160 scan tool, that is what I use on home cars.

it does all jeep codes, ALL.

i can drive , and scan and log DTCs.

and gather lots of facts on errors.

that is always the best way,

you can not fix cars today with out owning a scan tool.

unless , luckiest man on earth. (guessing)

Spark plug gap for 1997 mitsubishi trition 2.4 petrol ute


Spark plug gap does not effect the engine timing so it's not that critical. Thirty 5 (.035) should work just fine.
Otherwise consult a service manual fro your model or call a Mitsubishi service centre

Cylinders filling with gas


all cylinders? (a key question, if ever)
no year? wow.
a Daewoo Lacetti , actual in snakes clothing .
or one injector (by what test? my shoe drops....) there are 5 tests.
keep car outside, it too dangerous to be near people or homes.

on any MPI engine, if any injector sticks on, key on.?
we do a NOID lamp test on it.
pass or fail>? ever seen a noid?
http://www.fixkick.com/INJECTORS/injectors.html#NOID

but if it's only wet spark plugs and not NOID fail.'
then that is called only FLOODING.
and all that takes is lost spark. or compression loss.

fresh spark plugs.
full 60,000 mile tune up>? done. ???
which engine?
1.4 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.8 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (diesel) You said gas. so its not this.

we cant fix engines, until the hood opens and the mech. looks
in the USA the engine code is in the VIN.
Never own a suzuki, nor for sure a DAEWOO. but too late.

Strong petrol smell


When your engine misfires fuel is still being pumped into the engine, it's just not being ignited. You need to find the cause of the misfire first. It could be: a bad sparkplug, a bad sparkplug wire, a leaking head gasket, a bad ignition coil, or cracked engine block. I'd start with the spark plugs first, then the ignition coils as they commonly fail. Good luck!

98 land rover turns over but wont start


Get a used spark plug and hook it to a sparkplug wire and have someone crank it over and ground the plug and see if it sparks if it don't you have a problem with the computer or electronic ignition. Or it could be that it jumped timing.

I replaced my spark plug wires on my 1996 chevy truck. may have crossed one,need a diagram from the spark plugs to the distributer cap.


Since you didn't state whether it is a V6 or V8, I'll give you both.

V6 -4.3Liter
Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap, faces the front of the engine.

->Drivers side, spark plug order in engine, starting from the Front going back:
1-3-5
->Passenger side, spark plug order in engine,
starting from the Front going back:
2-4-6

If it's Electronic, the distributor cap has a Left side, (Drivers side), and a Right side, (Passenger side)
Starting from the Front, going back on the Left side,
3-1-5
Starting from the Front going back on the Right side,
2-4-6

V8-5.0, 5.7, and 7.4Liter
Firing Order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap,
faces Front, towards the Drivers side.

Electronic distributor cap has two sides. Drivers, (Left), side and Passenger, (Right), side.
Starting from Front going back on Drivers side,
1-7-3-5
Starting from Front going back on Passenger side,
8-2-4-6

Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Drivers side:
1-3-5-7
Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Passenger side:
2-4-6-8
