Hi

is this a gas version or diesel fuel ? if it is a dieserl then the heater plugs may be shot, you can normally give it 3 heats or lights then it would start easier, if not then this is msot likely the cause otherwise it could be a fuel pump problem, fuel relay fault or blocked fuel filter

Regards

Dan
hope this helps, if not get back to me with more specifics

6.0 2004 F-250 was starting hard when cold, replaced glow plugs &harness still starts hard runs rough, glow plug light stays on longer now though


time for replacement of or severe cleaning with fuelinjection cleaner..also if diesel, add cold start to the fuel system..check and replace oil filter type fuel filter since jelling of fuel may be a cold start issue..crack open an injector line and see if injector pump is pushing fuel really well..and see if air cleaner needs replaced blackened element is not good..good luck..

It has been very cold..but i plug the truck in every night, the last three days in the morning my fuel filter light comes on and the truck dies out and wont run right. I added Haws anti gel but it still...


make sure you have at least half a tank when it gets below 20 degrees because when it is cold fuel is more dense and this added density makes the engine work harder when starting also if you havent replace the fuel filter

2004 Saturn Ion wont start from time to time when it is cold outside.. Like this morning my daughter went outside and the car started right up with the temp outside 7 degrees. She warmed it up for awhile...


LOL repeating questions. Its your ignition switch. its a common problem with ions ( I myself have a 04 ion and had it replaced twice in 3 years) repair is around 400 dollars with labor. Just google "ion not starting in cold weather" and youll get TONS of threads. No recall either its stupid

Hard time starting it when it is cool


most times is a defective fuel pump, remember in the cold mornings engine needs more fuel to start, check fuel pressure

Ford 2002 f250 7.3 diesel won't start on cold mornings just replaced the cold start relay and still won't start...what else could it be?


It probably is your glow plugs which are controlled by the cold start relay. They burn out over time. This is normal. Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part 10330, will walk you through the diagnosis and replacement easily. It's about $20. Hope this helps.

Hard Starting in morning


Do mean you have hard time communicating with a scanner at the OBDII connector, if so make sure you power at pin16 at diagnostic connector, also we have seen issue with glowplugs not working properly causing hard start when cold and starts fine after warm-up
You can check for glowplugs operation at initial key-of before cranking by checking for voltage at each glowplug connector with a multimeter.

1999 F250 SD 7.3L cold starting problem


Yes, my 2003 did the same with about 75k miles on it, stranded me on days it stayed under 40F unless I plugged in the block heater the night before, then it started like a champ. Dealer replaced the relay and a control unit under ESP warranty. There's no way to fix this one without throwing parts at it.

Why does my jeep have a hard time starting in the mornings when its cold out (35 to 40 degrees)it has a new tune up, 120,000 miles and a 4cyl engine


My guess would be the battery. When was the last time it was replaced or serviced.
Batteries are rated in CCA (Cold Cranking Amps). When it is cold out the battery has to work harder to start the Jeep, in addition to battery having lower Amperage.
So your battery might not have enough CCAs to turn the Jeep over on those cold mornings.
