Engine cranks for 8-10 seconds before it starts when engine is warm


you must RUN the SCANNER/computer for better diagnostic and fix it. YOu can have some faulty like: PCM+BCM+ignition coil, sensor, etc. see the diagram attached.

When i start it it starts fine but if it is cold it will not idle i have to keep pushing gas pedal


remove and clean idle air control ( IAC ). this is what controls idling of engine, evedently the iac must be stuck. if the engine is cold and the iac is working properly, then it should go up to about 12 or 13 hundred rpms then gradually slow down to proper idle. my 2000 malibu 3.1 idles at 650 rpms when warm.

I have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred and the transmission is slipping. I need to be able to check the transmission fluid to see if it is low. How to I check the transmission fluid?


You may not be able to really. Some of these have dipsticks and some do not. CVT transmissions do not but some 6 speed transmissions do. If you do have one it should be near the air filter box. IF you have one....put the vehicle in park and start it up. Leave it running at an idle for several minutes until its good and hot. While it is running and hot, pull the stick and check the level. (be very careful) Fluid should be red in color and at the point on the stick where is says warm. If it is brown, you have trouble, if it is low, you have trouble. ie leak. Either way you look at it. ANY time a tranny slips it DOES cause further damage. I recommend a tranny shop

Good day: I don't accept that cold starting an engine at 2000 RPM is OK. Those immediate revs on a cold engine are wearing out parts that need oil lube and warm-engine clearances. Is there a simple way of...


I have heard that Fords theory behind that is to supply maximum oil pressure to moving parts sooner. All the Ford products do this and the motors last well into the hundreds of thousand of miles. I wouldn't be to worried about it since there is no issue with it to my knowledge and there is no way to limit the cold start RPM's.

Cold start warm ups are a thing of the past. Better lubricants, engines, fuel injection and other computer controls have made start ups easier on the engine. 30 seconds is barely enough time to warm up anything and after a few seconds oil has already reached all of its intended lubricating points. That first few seconds is the hardest on the engine. Regardless of how any RPM's it is turning.

Chainsaw starts fine, but after it warms up and I turn it off it doesn't want to start back up. Seems to be flooded? Put in new plug and filter, and always has fresh gas. What can I do?


You provide no model number. A look at your OM may have been beneficial. I think your warm start proceedure is the problem. Are you trying a warm start with ANY choke applied? Your OM should be similar to this:
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
You might also remove the starter cover and inspect the crank and flywheel for a bad key. I have heard a couple of complainrts lately. Remove clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor probably a good idea too.

M842 chainsaw wont start when hot


I suspect your warm start procedure is the fault, the manual is not correct IMO. Any choke on a warm engine causes flooding, try this, if no better post back or return it for warranty replacement.

Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.

AC works intermittently and sometimes gives warm air on one side,


Classic low charge. Needs about a can and a half. If you add and it starts acting up again, probably needs new seals.

If you pull it off and take it to an ac shop they'll charge you around a hundred to reseal. A new one is as little as $200 and as much as $400.
