This is not easy to say, but today's cars are very high tech and do-it-yourself stuff seldom results in solutions. As you have said, you have already spent a lot of money with no solution. Ask around for a good technition

3.2 t6 ranger cold start takes long


Most long cold starts are from the fuel returning to the tank. Check ball stuck and bleeds off. Next time, turn the key on and off 3 times. If it starts faster, that's the problem. Check ball is in the tank, part of the sending unit.. I would live with it. Costly fix.

Chrysler Crossfire will crank but not start. It starts fine when it's cold, but after driving around or making multiple stops, it will not start again. I have already changed the fuel pump relay


You can check codes on these without a scan tool ! surprised your mechanic doesn't know this ! Put the key in the ingition , turn it on then off , then on , then off then on again an leave it on . Then look at where the odometer is , will show P codes .

My 1992 dodge dakota truck will crank but not start


The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check some codes, yourself.
You can try cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, when problem is ongoing, if that helps, I think it's a fuel issue.

F250 spins over well will not start


Sounds like a faulty crank sensor. Can also be caused by a faulty cam sensor.

1999 chevy blazer has trouble starting from a cold crank


If your engine is cranking really strong make sure you have proper engine timing. If your engine is having a hard time cranking like its cranking really slow. You probably need to check your battery.

Hard Start with trouble code 32


You should have your battery checked, it may be getting old and doesn;t have as much cold cranking power, I don;t think code 32 has anything to do with the slow cranking when cold.


Trouble Code 32 indicates that the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve diaphragm is not where the ECM expects it to be. The ECM controls the diaphragm with a Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM) waveform. The EGR has a vacuum bleed solenoid that adjusts the vacuum applied to the EGR valve based on this pulse width. If there is sufficient vacuum at the EGR valve, a switch closes to send a signal back to the ECM. The absence of this signal is the bases for code 32.
The conditions for setting this code are:
  • no vacuum to EGR (switch open), and
  • Code 33 or 34 (MAF error) is not present, and
  • engine running and LV8 is less than 100, and
  • coolant temperature is > 118 deg F (48 deg C), and
  • the EGR solenoid duty cycle is < 65%, and
  • the above conditions are met for more than 25 seconds


Typical causes for this code include:
1) Faulty EGR valve-to-ECM connection
2) Plugged EGR passages and/or sticking EGR valve
3) Defective EGR valve
4) Defective ECM
