Your oil is very thick from the cold. The motor is struggling against the thick oil. You probably need an oil change with a lower viscocity oil. If you have a garage, push it in there and turn on the heat to warm it up. If you don't have a garage, you can place a small space heater under the oil pan to get it warmed up. Stay with it and keep an eye on it if you do that.
Once you get it warmed up and running ok, change the oil ASAP.

My van wont start. its turning over and almost starting but doesnt. last night it did the same thing so i floored the gas. it finally started and almost died but i gave it a lot of gas. after that it was...


Sounds like the Gas filter. Fairly easy fix. Locate gas tank. Follow gas line to engine, about half way usually by back door under the car, drivers side, is the small filter. Take a pic of it. Head over to car parts store. Show them what you need. It only takes a wrench and a bucket to catch a little gas.

Car will not turn over and start. Battery is good. All eletrical function work. car was working great when we shut it off the night before.


If it still doen't turn over with a jump start, it's your starter.

If it takes a jump, and then dies out again soon after, it's your alternator.

SINGLE MOM CAR WONT START!!!I DON"T HAVE TIME 4 THIS!!!!


so you turn the key and the starter does nothing... i would suggest that you attempt to start it while someone hits the starter with a hammer... not that gently but don't break the starter either.

If it suddenly turns over you need a new starter. and right away because using a hammer only works a few times.
