Try to see if distributer cap is clean. Also if your Van does not run properly after starting it is probably a problem with one of the injectors.
Try replacing glow plugs.
this answer is hard to find
bad gas mileage, hard starting, and basically bad performance.
how about plugs, wires or ignition module
Timing needs adjustment is the most likely cause.
NO. Your transmission leak has nothing to do with hard starting. Have you replaced the spark plugs & plug wires?
check fuel pressure, also a weak ignition coil or fould plugs could cause hard starting
it may be out of time have your timing checked
Poor performance on takeoff ... rotten gas mileage ... rough idling ... hard starting.
that's a hard one... try a music fairy or something or an Egyptian mummy
If you have upgraded turbo and fuel injectors, the motor is trying to start with too much gas pumping; it just needs more spark.
Bad spark plugs can have a variety of effects on the performance of your car's engine. Signs of bad spark plugs include a rough idle, engine hesitation, hard starting, check engine light illuminated with a DTC P0300 and reduced engine power.
no it has a timing belt. it's not that hard to replaced
Hard starting....cranks fine, won't fire. Add just a quick shot of starting fluid and it lights up...it's glow plugs. Tricky replacement, but can be done.
The first thing you'll notice is bad gasmileage that gets worse! Hard starting, then there will be misfire and rough idle, loss of power and eventually the engine will not start. The price of the new plugs and wires will be offset by the savings in gas!
Follow the plug wires and find the plugs. Sometimes the plugs can be hard to get out.
first, put a for sale sign on it. second, buy a chevy change the plugs and wires and cap and rotor? ceck the vacum advance
Spark Plugs need replaced Bad or Old Distributor or even a weak fuel pump, or old fuel filter.
Poor performance, poor fuel mileage, spark knock (aka ping), hard starting, engine run on, to name a few.
The plugs are accessed through the fender wells. Not to hard to change.
Ive JUST been starting to go over this myself. My 2004 Xterra has a 6 cyl., and only one of the plugs looks hard to get to back by the firewall. I am debating on whether Ill do this myself or pay someone to do it. Ill get back to you ASAP>
injector problem or tweeking the pump timing may help
Simple. Check your timing. If your timing is off, the spark plugs will fire all at the wrong time, which could cause the pistons to reverse motion. about the stoping thing, I'm not sure.
Bad missfire and if ur car is hard to start then its a stretched timing belt.
Incorrect spark plugs or wrong spark plug type or incorrect gap. All of thes things are critical. Wide gap or cold heat range make starting difficult. If you have an ecotec engine, #1 plug is also the cam sensor and any deviation from factory spec is bad.
