My 1990 Geo Prizm GSI will start, but it won't keep running when the weather is cold.


Sounds like the automatic choke control on the carburator is shot! It is stopping the proper flow of gas from getting to the engine...replace it! Also make sure you have recently replaced the fuel filter; moisture in the gas will stick to the filter and freeze up making it hard for gas to get through!

I have trouble starting my van when its is cold. after that its fine. the colder it is the longer it takes to start.


Not an unusual problem.....

Most important- tune-up! Make sure your plugs, distributor cap and rotor (if so equipped), air and fuel filter are OK and have been changed (at minimum) according to your owner's guide.

If your vehicle cranks over slow when cold-starting, consider a new battery. In cold weather, batteries lose efficiency, and older batteries lose more power than new ones.

Next... Gas - the fuel in cold weather states has a formula change in winter months to lower emissions- sometimes going to the next higher grade of fuel (example: from regular to mid-grade) helps.

If you have a garage, keeping the vehicle inside makes a huge difference with cold weather starting.

Keep your fuel tank full. Running the tank down and leaving it near empty most of the time allows condensation, which will result in getting water in your fuel, leading to hard starts and poor performance, and the increased risk of "rusting through" which will cause a leaky fuel tank.

97 Mercury Cougar hard starting in cold weather


No ,this vehicle doesn't have a cold start injector . Plus the fuel filter wouldn't have anything to do with it either , cold or hot would act the same . I would have it checked with scan data , do you know what that is ? Could be coolant temp sensor , mass air flow sensor .

Testing an not guessing is the way to a proper fix !
