Add a block heater. Or; 'they' sell these magnetic heaters that you can stick on the bottom of the engine to warm it up.

SOURCE: tractor work,s great untill it

First thing to check would be the covers around the engine. You don't list what brand of tractor or the motor but a common problem with all are the shields surrounding the top of the motor. These shields are not just to protect you from touching a hot surface, they are actually designed to help air flow around the cooling fins of the cylinder. It is very common for debris to build up in this area (from mice, or other critters, or just alot of grass clippings etc.) You need to take these covers off and clear out any debris around the cooling fins. That should solve your issue and prolong the life of your tractor. Hope this helps!

Hi, don't know if you have checked this but anyway if you hydraulic oil filter is clean there may be another sintered bronze filter in the sump of the hydraulic tank this could be patially blocked> don't know this particular machine but if it is partially blocked it may be that you will clean that or there is air in the hydraulic system. Hope this is of some help.

My uncle has a john deere 111 and my dad turned it on and off apparently trying to get the key out and it hasn't worked since. What should my uncle do?


Is this the old JD 111 made from 1979-1986? I would guess that it was left out in the weather over the years and that is why the key was stuck. Check the ignition switch and the starting solinoid. That is where I would start. Let me know if that is it. If it still does not work, then there are other routes to go. I have a JD 111 from 1980 that was recently left to me. I tuned it up last year and it still runs good. That is a testament to the old JD's.

My car doesnt want to start up right away in the morning. Almost like its really cold out and it takes it a min. The rest of the day its fine runs great. Any ideas?


Reason 1 - Gasoline, like any other liquid, evaporates less when it is cold.You have seen this -- if you pour water onto a hot sidewalk it will evaporate a lot faster than it will from a cooler place like a shady sidewalk. When it gets really cold, gasoline evaporates slowly so it is harder to burn it (the gasoline must be vaporized to burn). Sometimes you will see people spray ether into their engines in cold weather to help them start -- ether evaporates better than gasoline in cold weather.

Reason 2 - Oil gets a lot thicker in cold weather. You probably know that cold pancake syrup or honey from the refrigator is a lot thicker than hot syrup or honey. Oil does the same thing. So when you try to start a cold engine, the engine has to push around the cold, gooey oil and that makes it harder for the engine to spin. In really cold places people must use synthetic motor oils because these oils stay liquid in cold temperatures.


Re ason 3 - Batteries have problems in cold weather, too. A battery is a can full of chemicals that produce electrons The chemical reactions inside of batteries take place more slowly when the battery is cold, so the battery produces fewer electrons. The starter motor therefore has less energy to work with when it tries to start the engine, and this causes the engine to crank slowly.

All three of these problems can make it impossible to start an engine in really cold weather. People either keep their cars in heated garages or use "block heaters" to get around these problems. A block heater is a little electric heater that you plug into the wall to keep the engine warm.

Either that season's gas dried in the carburetor affecting it's operation or you are drawing air through a fuel seal somewhere. Both are common with this model. Sometimes will start from cold and run up to half speed until you take the choke off. Then it just dies from not drawing gas. Status proved if it revs up if sprayed with short blip of ether from 7" away at the moment it dies. Do not try to keep it running on ether more than a minute. Like pure gas, it'll burn up the engine or worst. Do not use ether if the air is not moving. Ether may collect and explode.

How to start 92 npr diesel in cold weather


You will probably need some Ether based starting fluid. You may have to remove air filter to shoot a 2 second blast into the intake - but first try shooting the air intake with the 2 second blast and start vehicle. Diesel fuel tends to thicken in cold weather and a fuel additive like Lowes diesel fuel treatment may help keep your fuel fluid in colder weather. In cold weather, like on a night of clear skies causing low temperatures, a block engine heater will help to keep your fuel fluid - along with the diesel treatment. Block heaters are not too difficult to install depending on your vehicles configuration and how much room you have at a freeze plug, and are well worth the cost.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!
