Check your IAC (cold start) value. This could be the culprit.

SOURCE: cold starting problem

you could have a couple differnet issues. cold start misfires, an intake air leak, poor compression with engine cold,or a fuel pressure issue with a leaking injector or fuel pressure is bleeding back due to a faulty pressure regulator. my recommendation is to buy a fuel pressure gauge and monitor pressure overnight. you could also pull the fuel rail and see if an injector is leaking at the same time. you can spray the intake system with a highly volitile liquid(with engine running) to see if idle speed changes to check for an air leak

I have trouble starting my 2007 HHR upon initial start-up. it sputters but after a few seconds of that it starts to run fine. I can stop somewhere turn it off and crank it again and it starts fine seems...


this could be a bad fuel pump that has a problem from sitting over night or when it cools down enough.the armature in the pump may be worn and when its cold it has a hard time turning the pump because of it being worn and when it gets warmed up enough the clearance is closer than when cold and works fine.

Cold start? Won't start?


assuming its only starting cold in the morning after sitting all night. try plugging it in at night. if your suv doesnt have a plug-in buy a block heater from your local hardwear store and that should fix your problem.

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)
