My car wont start when cold outside could this be the problem of a failing fuel pump


More likely the battery, try starting the car with no electrics running (interior light, fans, wipers etc.) when it fires rev it up a few times and let it idle for a bit before pulling away if it runs fine after this you can use you electrics as normal . if its an auto pull away slowly if its a manual pull away with more revs than normal but very slowly engage the clutch.

Van has no power at low revs only


Most ignition modules have two parts -- a low speed section and a high speed section. Your low rev section could be bad. Most parts stores will test it free.

The oil pressure is low at idle and rises with higher engine revs. Oil levels are ok, new oil approx 2000kms ago. Was a slight noise at one stage in the engine but went away after engine's revs in


It sounds as if the clearance that the bearings normally run in have been surpassed and need to be replaced. Higher engine revs will supply extra oil which will overcome any small discrepencies but constant running at this stage will result in faster degradation of all engine components concerned resulting in a more expensive repair. Shes basically worn out.

No power on hills or flat.revs up high rpm before shifting.errattic shifting


First check the level of fluid in your transmission, if its an automatic , there will be a dipstick on top of transmission and there is a line on dipstick when its warm running usually in neutral.( will say on dipstick if you run vehicle in neutral or in park), if car is a standard, theres a plug on side of trans. usually have to do this under vehicle. pull plug with car level and put finger in hole and if you cant feel fluid on finger its low. also in automatics if fluid is dark and not clear or bright red and stinks (with a burnt smell ) its usually means you have transmission problems. if fluid is low you have a leak and if went to long low on fluid chances are transmission is bad.

Just started to pull away from a stop in 1st and


sounds as though your input shaft broke, this would cause a loud clunk, cause it to feel as though in gear, and cause no pull.

Might be, have a fuel pressure test done on it, that will show if there is a fuel problem, or there is something else causing it.
