Now, I don't know a lot about the electronic fuel injection systems on Harleys but I would guess that there would be an engine temperature sensor on the engine somewhere that would tell the computer that the engine is cold and to enrichen the mixture. The engine should go into high idle speed until the temperature comes up to a certain point as well.

I have a 2006 Chevy Malibu. I got in my car this morning and it didn't want to start. It is -8 degrees this morning. The first time I tried to start it, I got nothing, as if the battery was dead. Then, the...


This cold weather can play havoc with any car...Be sure you are keeping gas tank above half full. Add a bottle of "Heat" and a bottle of injector cleaner for help...Also do have your Battery and Alternator checked at your local auto parts store...this should be a free service. Please don't expose yourself to being stranded by something that is giving you valuable warning signs...Also how long since a quality oil change...another major concern in cold weather. Hope this helps.

2006 Saturn VUE - high-pitched whine above 25 mph


What you do, is take it to a shop and you drive and have someone ride with you to diagnose the issue. You never leave a veh at a shop with out a road test and a mech or tech that has some interest in finding the problems. Also run it on the lift in the shop to see if it can be duplicated. Preferablely on rollers on the ground, such as a dyno machine,, so as not to harm the drive axles, if that applies to your veh.

How can we check the ignitor and coil ? what are the specs?


What engine do you have? You could still hear your fuel pump running but if you haven't checked the fuel pressure you may still have a problem with your fuel pump. You should be around 38 to 44 PSI when key is turned on not running. Did you verify you are getting spark or is there nothing to the plugs? Your ignition coil resistance should be (cold 9000-15,400 ohms) Primary should be .36-.55.
Your pickup coil resistance depending whether you are California or excluding California
California is
cold- pick up coil terminals G1 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up coil terminals G2 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up Coil terminals NE & G- Ohms 155-250
Ex. California models
cold-Pick up coil terminals G+ & G- Ohms 185-275
Cold-Pick up coil terminals NE+ & NE- Ohms 370-550 ohms
You also need to check air gap between PIck-up Coil & Signal rotor
California is .008-.020
Except California .008-.016

Here are some of the suggestions from Mitchell books:
ENGINE CRANKS BUT FAILS TO START:
*Ensure proper spark exists from ignition system
*Ensure Fuel system performs properly (fuel pump, Fuel filter, Fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator).
*Check engine compression, valve clearance, valve timing and timing belt (if equipped)
Check airflow meter or MAP sensor and wiring
*Check idle air control valve (if equipped) and wiring.
*Check circuit opening relay and EFI main relay.
*Check STA signal at Engine Control Modual (ECM)
*Check Engine Control Modual (ECM) and wiring.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 litre petrol. Starts from cold (stood overnight). Twelve minute drive to work - slowing down at lights etc engine stalls constantly. No problem re-starting. Pull into a layby...


Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.
