Hi Dennis

Most likely cause is the air mass sensor, also known as the MAF sensor, if this is playing u they often do this for the first 30 minutes but can function fine once warm. Also Dennis you can clean these and at times they work just fine again.

ths part is located on the air pipe, has a wired plug. get back to me if you need more info, a replacement should cost no more than $50 $60

Regards
Dan

2007 Toyota Tacoma v6. Hard to start about 1 hour after initial cold start, longer cranking. Problem?


Is the check engine light on? How long has it been since the engine was tuned up? A worn plug that is "hot soaked" can create a longer cranking time. Hot soaked means it may have some un-burned fuel in the cylinder since the first cold start. A weak or worn plug has a harder time getting this fuel burned out of the cylinder when more fuel is being added during a warm start.

I have 2000 Lincoln town car. Stalls out ...have


Ever had someone guess for you over the
phone or on the internet at what is wrong
with your car or any product?

How would someone do that without the car
to talk to you the driver,road test with professional
tools.look at data & component test with or without codes

I can't imagine how long or how many times you would wait
an hour before you could start your car before you would drive
or tow it to shop & end that misery

It is not the injectors

I would say the fuel pump is or has failed
But again,you shouldn't take anyone's guess

You have to have the vehicle tested
The fuel system can be tested in about 8 different ways

You could have several problems & if you only drive the car
& never work on it a few times a year I'm sure that is the case

It needs lots of testing & lots of thing done to it

You injectors are 14 years old

The only way to clean them is to remove them & mail away
for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

No fuel tank additive or on car cleaning will help an injector
in service for 14 years

I could spend see you spend two thousand easily,just to catch
up on Preventative Maintenance,given you made no mention
of the vehicle history,past problems,repairs,etc

Cold start smooth, when warms up very rough with rich black smoke


Your will need a road test with a professional scan tool
& record & look at data

IF ---you never do any Preventative Maintenance & few folks
do,anything at all,then problems are coming your way

Flashing MIL Lamp-- is a Class A-- Exhaust Converter Ruining
Cylinder Misfire

Runs Rough,Black Smoke --BUT--you keep using it & only
now, think maybe something is wrong !!

That car has lots wrong,that needs work,way too much to
write a book on it here, for you

Your Fuel Trim must be sky high

No fuel control & lots of misfire counts

The 14 years from 1997 to now, the converter is worn out,
but you have lots to do before replacing that

Starts good cold, because your in open loop & the fuel is
controlled by the PCM

Once it warms up & goes into closed loop,you have no
fuel control

Sometimes car cranks,wont start,i spray starting fluid & it starts ,runs fine. has new fuel pump & filter.


Some cars have 2 temperature sensors. 1 makes the dash gauge work and the other makes the engine controls work. The car has a "Cold start" sequence which does the job of the old choke. The system resets after the motor cools down.

The timing is adjusted, the fuel is set rich and the idle speed is increased. Sounds like your engine is not using this program.

My 1997 town car is burning to much fuel not leaking it but burning it i can smell the gas when driving it


It can be several things. The engine automatically sets to a RICH mode for cold starts. It will stay in RICH until a temperature sensor warms up. There are sometimes 2 sensors with one for the dash and the other for the engine controls.
Next would be a faulty fuel pressure regulator keeping the pressure too high. Or dirty fuel injectors failing to close properly.
Finally, air leaks in the intake manifold will make the O2 sensors dump fuel to restore the fuel ratio. Check with water spray bottle on intake seams while engine is running.

2000 lincoln town car runs rich, with alittle misfire. It idles high.


Probably a clogged fuel injector. Try some fuel injector cleaner or replace the injectors.Could be a lot of other problems too. Bad O2 sensor, bad fuel pressure regulator. Need to do more diagnosis.

Can i drive my rodeo with a stuck open thermostat whats down fall


YOU WILL LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION. A OPEN OR MISSING THERMOSTAT WILL CAUSE VECHICLE STAY IN OPEN LOOP.ENGINE WILL BURN RICH BURN MORE FUEL.YOUR THERMOSTAT ALLOWS COOLANT TEMPERATURE TO GET AT A SET POINT WHERE ECM OR PCM ADJUST FUEL SYSTEM FROM OPEN LOOP RICH MIXTURE FOR COLD ENGINE TO CLOSED LOOP TO LEAN OUT FUEL SYSTEM AS ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET HOT.YOU NEED TO REPLACE THERMOSTAT.OPEN THERMOSTAT WILL CAUSE NO HEAT PROBLEMS ALSO.

What does it means when i press the accelarator i smell gas and my car is a 1985 lincoln town car?


If you are smelling gas then one of two things is wrong. You either have a fuel leak or the engine is running with an overly rich fuel/air mixture.
