These cars have a problem with the main relay. They quit working when they get hot. This explains why your car will start when it is cold. Check out some of the other posts about this problem, also the Honda Civic.

1998 GMC Yukon. It has trouble starting once it starts it runs great


Eliminating the obvious, do NOT put your foot anywhere near the accelerator AT ALL when starting the vehicle (some people actually stomp on the accelerator while starting their vehicle, then wonder why their vehicle won't start when cold).
You may be losing pressure at the fuel rail when the truck is off. Either you have a fuel leak (such as a leaky fuel injector or leak in a fuel line), or you have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Try turning the key to ON, leave it there for ten seconds, then start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts more easily, you are losing fuel pressure when the vehicle is off.
It is also possible that the check valve in your fuel pump assembly is leaking pressure back into the tank. Additionally, as a last measure, replace all fuel in the vehicle to eliminate the possibility of fuel contamination or moisture build-up. Avoid using ethanol blend fuels in your vehicle, if possible.

Hard start cold, fine rest of day


I would be checking to see why there is power to the pump with the ignition off as this is a source to flat battery overnight.. May be a relay is still activated by a power source other than the ignition.

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

Van will not start when its cold. it cranks and cranks. once you do get it started it restarts fine. have checked spark and fuel all is good. changed air filter also. no lights come on


I saw something similar to this on a 1991 dodge van a few days ago.. turns out it was the battery. It was odd, because it cranked over fine and had spark and fuel, but would not start. If your battery is good, then confirm that your fuel pressure is ok

My 2003 Alero, won't start in the morning,, its like its not getting fuel when trying to start it,, it crank fine, but won't turn over,, when I spray some quick start in the intake , it will start,,, and...


Its faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter.In your vehicle the fuel pressure is low,due to this faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter,so its not starting.But it starts when you spray liquid in intake.The liquid directly goes to engine so vehicle starts.Replace the fuel pump and filter.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

1989 mpv mazda does not start on cold mornings and days


I'm assuming the engine cranks with the starter but does not start and run.

check the operation of the cold start injector. This is a separate fuel injector that injects fuel into the intake manifold to help richen up the mixture for cold starts. It operates on a timer that is linked to a sensor that measures engine coolant temperature. Once warm or the timer runs out, the cold start injector is turned off. Other things to check:

Fuel pressure too high (floods engine through cold start injector), engine coolant temp sensor or intake air temp sensor is stuck at full hot (doesn't allow enough fuel for cold starts), fuel injectors are leaking (floods engine with fuel).

I have a 2001 IS 300 with 160,000 mi. I was having trouble starting the car in the morning where it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to turn over. It is in a garage in California, so not in extreme cold....


try if this works\improves your situation;

turn the key to ON but don't crank, let it sit for 2 seconds. Do this 2-3 times, then put it in the ON position, wait 2 seconds then crank. As for what it is, could be spark plugs, fuel pump\line issue, etc..

YOU REPLACED BATTERY.BUT CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RIGHT COLD CRANKING AMPS.AND CHECK BATTERY CABLES.MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND TIGHT.IF BATTERY CABLES OVER 10 YEARS OLD REPLACE THEM.MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING RIGHT VISCOSITY MOTOR OIL.YOU SHOULD BE USING 5W - 30 ENGINE OIL IN COLDER CLIMATES.IF YOUR OIL TOO THICK IT WILL CAUSE ENGINE DRAG WHEN CRANKING IN COLD WEATHER.

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.
