These engines as you probably know,start instantly and the glow plugs rarely activate unless it is very cold.Sounds more like air being drawn into the fuel system.Has it recently had a fuel filter change?Pipes may not be quite on.Had the water drain open?Been over rough ground,dislodged a pipe joint? Are you sure all four glow plugs are ok in the event of it being cold enough to need them,they are easy to test.

Will trying to insert the door key into the ignition ruin the ignition if the ignition key has a chip?

Well, I don't see that it would help it any! There are 2 keys for a reason! Why would you want to insert the door key in the ignition? It surely won't start the vehicle! Unless the ignition is already screwed up and can start with anything! The tumblers in the the locks for the ignition and doors are different! It would be like putting your house key in the car! Won't work!

I have a 91 Geo storm that turns over but no fire from coil?

Try the ignition control module. Had the same problem with mine $36 part fixed it. The ignition control module is in the distributor and so is the pickup coil, but the ignition coil is by the battery. There is a spark test that can be done. If it was already done and couldn't see a spark, then it could be the ignition coil it self , the ignition wire, or any possible electrical connections.

Why wont my Subaru idle when it is cold?

When any car idles, it lowers the ignition energy (but not completely) to keep the car running. When it is cold outside, your Subaru's ignition energy is lost through heat because electricity also is measured through heat. When there is less ignition energy when it is already running on a lower ignition level, the car (your Subaru) is not likely to idle.

How do you remove a 1976 corvette ignition switch?

Ignition switch is located above brake pedal on column. It has long flat electrical connector to it. If by ignition switch you mean the key tumbler: Remove steering wheel. Remove lock plate. Remove Turn signal switch. Remove screw retaining ignition. There should be a code stamped on the ignition. If the ignition is still good a locksmith can cut the key from the code. Might be cheaper to slap a new one if you have already got that far though.
