Truck starts hard after sitting long but starts fine only when sitting a short while?
it could be several problems main 3 to start with are spark air fuel
most likely your fuel lines or filter could have build up or pressure loss
also a bad wire to starter or your air filter could need replaced so check air and battery and fuel

Answer . the same way you start an engine that you used yesterday. However, if it doesn't start as it should, then you have to deal with whatever problem is preventing it from starting.. I am going to assume the engine was in a car. I'd be surprised if the battery is any good at all, sitting thi…s long, it's plates have probably sulfated so badly it isn't likely to take and hold a charge.. If you do try to recharge it, make sure the cells are covered with DISTILLED WATER & try recharging at a very low rate, say from 2.5 to 6 amps. It may take 4-5 days to brake down the sulfates & recharge at this rate, but I doubt the battery will be any good, having set unattended this long, so I'd plan on a new one.. You'll likely need new coolant & heater hoses too, maybe a new belt/s.. If this puppy was rode hard, put up wet & none of the fluids were changed before storage, I'd begin with ALL new fluids. Brake fluid, Coolant, Engine oil, Re-lube the wheel bearings, Tyranny lube, Drain the gas tank & the fuel lines, if the old gas is still in there, ya gotta get rid of it.. Refill the tank with fresh gas, with 0.4 oz per gallon of Marvel oil mixed in with the new petrol. After you run a tank or two through it, I'd change the fuel filter too.. I'd remove the spark plugs & squirt about 4 tablespoons of Marvel Oil in each cylinder & let it sit over night.. Then remove the plugs & disable the spark.. Then crank the engine for maybe two 15 second periods, (so as not to overheat the starter) to distribute the Marvel oil in the cylinders, build oil pressure & prime the fuel system.. Then replace the plugs & enable the spark & start her up.. Don't try to roll the car, as the wheel bearings may be welded from all the vehicles weight being on them this long, clean & re lube them first.. I don't know what to tell you about the tires, as we don't know under what conditions it's been stored. ( Full Answer )
After driving a while your truck won't start won't say nothing all the head lights and radio work but when you turn the key nothing After sitting a while it starts?
Answer . Have starter load tested.. Answer . it's your solinoid. Answer . Older Chevy's are known for this problem. it is because the starter and selonoid are so close to the exhaust that they get hot. this causes more resistence in the selonoid so it just needs to cool down. Try some hea…t shielding to prevent the problem.. If the starter/solenoid does not fix the issue...you should also check the ignition module and the cap/rotor. Had the exact same issue. The module will over heat when you have a bad rotor or cap. When it's cold it will start right up, but if you ran the car to the store and tried to restart, it wouldn't start for at least 10 minutes. Then it would start fine. Turned out the rotor was bad, which was causing excessive voltage requirements which overheated the ignition module. Changed them, and, voila, problem gone. ( Full Answer )
Your 1999 GT Grand Prix Hesitates to start in the mornings but then it starts fine the rest of the day this has been happeing only in the mornings after it sits still for the night?
Answer . One of your fuel injectors may be leaking. You do not notice it during the day mainly because the pressure maybe holding enough. Sitting over night the pressure drops to the injector and takes a few more cranks than usual to build the pressure up.
Why does a 91 ford Tempo shut off while driving and then not start but when it sits for sometime 30 minutes usually it starts up just fine?

1993 Saturn fuel problem it is very hard to start soon after shut down and it blows black smoke and stuff out exhaust it starts fine after sitting overnight but uses way too much gas just started this?
Answer . Sounds like your fuel injectors need to be checked. Had a LeBaron with the same problem, Chrysler had issued a recall but dealer never told me when I came in for service. Got my $300 back finally. Check with a Saturn dealer to see if they can suggest something.. Had a celica that did sa…me thing. The temp sensor was reading 20 degrees F. Computer was choking down engine. Had sensor changed and car runs great. Toyota dealer couldn't find problem. Used machanic guru in local shop. ( Full Answer )
could be many things. alternator not charging battery. battery not taking a charge. fouled spark plugs. most likely its the charging system. try starting the car with the headlights on and see if they dim severely. check your battery with a tester. give more details. good luck
93 Chevy blazer 4.3 v 6 very hard to start after sitting over night but after you get it started and warmed up it starts just fine please help?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYouve got a bad egr vavle or you got blowby in the intake.....since it is a tbi engine you might want to check the choke solenoid that warms up the intake all these could help\n. \n. \n I Had the Exact Same Problem = Replaced the Coolant Temp. Sensor \n. \nEverytime it …sat overnight, I would have to use starter fluid to fire it up. After replacing the spark plugs, Cap & Rotor, PCV, had the ignition coil tested(fine), cleaned out the air-intake from the front and fuel injection system from the rear. It still refused to start when the engine was cold, but would start fine once it had been warmed up. \n. \nFinally, I asked a guy at the autoparts store. He said I needed a new Coolant Temperature Sensor ($12) to fix my cold-starting problem. The Sensor is about the size of a Bic Lighter and looks like a brass round pin that's flat at the end that screws into the side of the engine block and uses an oval shaped plug with 2 pins. Basically, when the engine is cold, the Coolant Temp. Sensor tells the ignition components deliver a hotter spark to ignite the fuel. As the engine warms up, the Sensor tells the ignition components to deliver less spark as the engine becomes warm enough to heat gasoline from its liquid state, to a vapor-state (which is much more combustible than in liquid form.)

Answer . Make up a posters on the computer and make several copies and leave them in the neighborhood mail slots. You could also ask some store owners if you could leave your poster in their store (some will let you and some won't.). Here's some tips: Do the poster in red (even if you have to …carefully print it. This is how it should read:. BABY-SITTING SERVICES. Mature 14 year old free to baby-sit during summer vacation and weekends. Please contact: Sherry (put your name here and your phone #.). NOTE: It would be wise to have character contacts for perspective parents (parents are very careful who they leave their small children with) so you can ask your parents, neighbors, a couple of a teachers or a minister to write you out a letter stating you are mature and responsible.. I just gave you an example for your poster, but you can change it around to suit yourself. Other than neighbors know you other people needing baby-sitters will want those letters of recommendation I mentioned.. You will also have to find out what the hourly rate is for baby-sitting in your town or city and you can find that out by asking some of your friends what they get paid or perhaps your mother could answer this question.. Good luck ( Full Answer )
Check the cars ignition coil and crank sensor. Either of thesecould be overheating and causing the car to not start until it sitsfor a while.

Why would a 1999 dodge stratus start up fine but then sputter and die while driving or sitting at idle for a while?
There are any number of answers to this question and I know because I have a 1998 Stratus and it is currently happening to me. It could be the fuel pump is not working properly. It could be the crank sensor. It could be insufficient pressure in the fuel delivery to the engine (like if theres a kink …in the fuel line. It could be faulty ignition wires. It could be the catalytic converter. The manual says thet. With me it always happened when the car was low on gas and it feels like as your driving, the engine isnt't gettineg enough gas. When this happens to me, I note that if I put in a couple gallons of gas, it will start up after awhile. This led my mechanic to believe one or two other things: One, the gas guage is inaccurate and is telling me that there is enough gas in the tank when in fact there isn't. Two, He also suggested that the tube which runs from the tank to the engine is too high up in the tank. It's like the drain in a sink. The drain is flush with the bottom, so the sink drains completely. Think if the drain was one inch higher than the bottom of the sink. At that level, there would be water in the sink but not flowing through the drain. If that is the situation in the gas tank, the guage would say there is gas in the tank but the outflow tube is too high for it to drain out to the engine. Good luck. I wish there was a definitive answer, but there isn't. [EDIT]: I had a very similar problem with my 2000 Dodge stratus. It would get so bad that the entire car would rumble while idling. In my case, it was a combination of misfiring spark plugs and corroded wiring to said spark plugs. My mechanic said it was "a hell of a job" after repairing it. If your mechanic uses a code reader, it should tell you whether or not this is your problem fairly quickly. He should see a bunch of "misfire" codes. ( Full Answer )
More information is needed, such as, the year, make and model. Is it when the car is cold or hot,rainy or dry weather, gas tank full or half full. The are to many possibilities.
For the starting, we'd need to know the symptoms. Maybe badbatteries or a bad starter. For power on the hills, try replacingyour fuel filters.

What if your 2002 Chevy Cavalier is hard to start after sitting over night It runs and starts fine the rest of the day after the first start up?
Check the air filter, fuel filter, and the choke to start with. Itsounds like the engine is starving air until it warms up.
Probably a bad fuel pressure regulator. I bet if u let it sit for a while it starts fine, due to an excess amount of fuel goin through the fuel injectors.

What would cause a 1990 Dodge Spirit to lose power while driving then only start after it sits for awhile?
Might be the spark plugs or wires... when the vehicle heats up, the wires expland and they break apart making very little to no spark until the wires cool down and contract, restoring the connection.

Two things which can commonly cause this to happen are:. 1) Battery - go to any local battery place and they will test your battery. 2) Dirty carburetor - this is most commonly a problem if you have old gas sitting in the scooter over the winter. Go to a scooter/motorcycle mechanic and get the car…buretor cleaned. The good news is that both these remedies should cost less than $100 ( Full Answer )

If your engine is over heating it could get too hot and quit running, then start again when it gets cooled off. Otherwise, "something" got too hot and quit working, cools off and works again.
What would cause a chattering noise to come from your clutch or transmission every time you start your truck after it has been sitting for a while and it also grinds gears occasionally when cold?

Why is my 1994 5.2 v8 dodge Dakota smoking it only smokes when sitting still not when i start it and it clears up when driving. damn good truck just smokes when sitting still to long.?
You are probably leaking some kind of fluid on either your exhaust or your block. If i were you i would clean your engine really well then start it up and look for the wet spot. That will tell you what is leaking.
make sure battery is charged, make sure it has good fuel in the tank, replace fuel filter. maybe new spark plugs and spark plug wires. and then try to turn it on. tell me if it turned on, if no we can discuss it more.
1988 jeep comanchhe truck that will not start sometimes after it sits for a while you have to spray starter fluid in it?
Check to make sure there is no restriction in the fuel lines, do that by removing both ends of the fuel lines, use a air line to blow through, go lightly when you do that, also it is a bad indication your fuel pump is on the way out, or check to see that the fuel filter is not plugged.

1983 380 SL hard to start when warmed up new coil plugs wires cap and rotor car sits overnight starts fine?
It could be a couple of things that would make your car do that.... firstly, did you have this problem prior to installing all those ignition items? If you didn't have that problem, I would think it would be the coil. Did you also replace the spark plugs? It's also important to use factory MB parts …for these specific applications. A lot of after market parts really don't measure up to factory specs. Yes, they're much cheaper, but a lot of times they won't work properly. My best guess would have to be the fuel system. It could be: Frequency Valve Fuel Pressure Regulator Oxygen Sensor Thermo Time Switch Warm Up Regulator Those listed items are what it could be with the amount of information you provided.

Can you put check valve in fuel line. My 2000 Wrangler starts hard because pump loses pressure after sitting a while?
You shouldn't be losing pressure, if you are there is something not working correctly. Check your fuel pressure regulator, that is one place where excess pressure is routed back to the fuel tank, and where a malfunction could make you lose pressure while the vehicle sits. Another option would be… to let the fuel pump run a few seconds before starting the vehicle. The regulator, check valve, and pump are part of the same module in the tank. Either replace the fuel pump module or cycle the key before starting ot prime the system. ( Full Answer )

Why does your car start up well when its hot outside but after it sits without running for a while its hard to start?
It is a combination of things that contribute to cars not starting well in in cold temperatures. A car is started by a combustion reaction. For this to occur we turn the key that sends an an electrical current to turn the starter motor. This is a chemical reaction as with all chemical reaction its… is slowed down in cold temperatures. As a result there is not as much power going to the starter motor. Another factor is the viscosity of the oil. When the oil is cold it is thicker and does not flow as well. It is also not as combustible. Another factor is Moisture. Cold air can not hold moisture as well as warm air. As a result the moisture in the air settles on surfaces. Just like morning dew on grass Your car will be wet on a cold morning. Moisture has a knack of finding its way into electrical components and so on. The moisture that gets into electrical connections can divert some of the power resulting in a loss of charge. ( Full Answer )
