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.

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.

you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computer relies solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

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.

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.

ROUGH RUNNIG IN THE COLD MORNINGS, STALLS OUT AT TIMES.


Is it a diesel? If so,check the resistance of the glow plugs,not uncommon in this brand.
