cab lot of answers to that one but first place to check, is to make sure automatic choke is shutting off completely Spark plug gap is pretty important. Pull the plugs and gap to .30 to .35 and that may help the engine to run more smoothly.
most cars misfire when it is really cold. try to warm up your engine before starting it up. If it still misfires when it's a nice day, something is wrong with your engine (spark plugs, battery, etc.)
Yes! Thermostat stuck open. Replace thermostat. It could, but the thermostat is normally open when the engine is warm so you should only notice this when the engine is cold or warming up.
Misfire is usually caused by faulty spark plug wires or spark plugs or both. I don't see the throttle body causing misfire.
1996 Ford Contour is sometime caused by a misfire on startup. The error will clear itself after 3 complet warm-up cycles not restarts.
The LS is prone to coil failure which leads to a misfire in the affected cylinder. A misfire due to a failing coil usually happens when the engine is warm and under load (low RPMs, accelerating or going uphill). The misfire may feel like a transmission problem because it causes the car to buck and stutter as though the gears were skipping or getting stuck briefly. The worse the misfire gets, the harder it will be to accellerate. Sometimes the misfire condition can be overcome by applying more RPMs or reducing the load on the engine. See my post about the valve cover leaking issues contributing to this issue.
Are you sure warm has anything to do with it? I thought my mx-3 getting warm then bogging down and it ended up being that the catalytic converter had fallen apart and was restricting the exhaust.
Bad thermostat? Doesn't close enough to allow engine to warm up properly
Try adjustin the engine idle speed,(600-800 rpm) but remember adjust it when the engine is warm,a cold engine will raise your rpm and lower to normal when it becomes warm. If this does not solve out you may need to adust the alternator belt.Good luck
Your thermostat may be stuck in the open position. It is a strightforward task to replace it. If you pop the hood and look from the driver side towards the engine you will see a small diameter hose connected to the thermostat housing with 2 bolts. Drain the coolant, remove the bolts, replace the thermostat and refill.
starting with the redesigned 1998 altima the engine crankshaft was balanced much better to reduce vibration. we have a 1993 and a 1999 altima with the same engine and the 1999 is so smooth at idle i sometimes can't tell if it's running.
Minimum of 10 psi at idle when the engine is warm.Minimum of 10 psi at idle when the engine is warm.
Around 750 rpm with warm engine and in gear.Around 750 rpm with warm engine and in gear.
I recently serviced a 2010 f350 with 6.4 diesel engine that was overfilled 9 quarts. Yes nine quarts. Truck ran like that for over a month and the symptomps were similar to having a misfire. The idle was rough, truck was shaking a lot,like it had a bad engine mount it was also choking at times especialy when warm.
5S-FE engine. engine warm. jump terminals TE1 and E1 in the data link collector box in the bay. hook up the t-light, timing is 10 degrees BTDC
Bonkers - 1993 Is Toon Fur Really Warm 1-6 was released on: USA: 9 September 1993
we have 1993 acura legend it hard up it 4 to 5 times to start up when it start it will start up e.z i mean when engine warm up any body have any idea ?
It starts better when its warm!
because the engine is cold and you need to keep the engine warm.
The "plug" powers an coolant heater. A diesel engine starts easier if the engine is warm.
Actually, mine does, but thanks for asking. We need a better description of the problem before we can help. Describe the symptoms a little better. Does the engine crank? Does it do it only when the engine is warm, etc?
Faulty: spark plug, spark plug wire, ignition coil, ignition module, fuel injector are the most common. Coolant leaking into a cylinder is another. Internal engine problems such as burnt valve, broken valve spring, bent push rod, worn rings
check ignition control module. that is where i would start looking. 2. Had a similar problem with '98. Replaced ASD relay in engine compartment fuse box (12 bucks) and problem went away.
why won't 1992 Accura Integra RS start in warm weather
to keep engine warm faster n regulate heat to radiator
