In older cars, where your air filter is, there is a door that is suppose to shut when your car is cold. check the sensor on top of the air filter canister by placing a bag of ice on it and look to see if the door in the intake part closes, with the engine running. Look at rubber hoses to see if any of the vaculum lines are leaking. otherwise check out your fuel, timing and spark. The "door" that was being described as part of the air cleaner is the "heat riser" mechanism that is there to prevent carburetor icing during damp-cold weather. If your vehicle runs ok during cold rainstorms you're probably ok there. But carbureted vehicles do have a choke mechanism that provides a little extra fuel during startup. Check that the choke is operating properly. When the engine is cold, check that the choke is completely closed, you may need to touch the gas pedal to release tension to allow the choke to close. BTW, any time you start a carbureted vehicle you should always push the pedal down once and let it back up so that the choke can "set". Also, any vehicle that has poor compression will have a little extra trouble starting. If the above descriptions haven't helped, have the compression checked at a reputable garage to see if that could possibly be your problem. its possible it is anewer vechicle. and the fuel pressure regulater is bad the quick check is to remove vacumne line and see if any fuel drips out.unless its a vortech engine.then you remove large vac line on upper pluemn. some older carburated vechicals it can be primery choke pulloff. hey, it is a Nissan Sentra 2004 1.8 i hate it it takes at most 5 sec of turnover before it starts but then when i shut it of then turn it back on it starts up right away sounds like the fuel pump is leaking off presure the regulator in most cars only changes presure slightly will the pump should hold all the time check for leaks and the next time it sits overnight turn the key on but dont try to start u will hear the pump buzz for 2 seconds turn the key off and on again and on the 3rd turn it should start like usual this will presurize the system and let u know if the pump is loosing presure

it could be the starter. Mine did the same thing and i changed the starter and it works good now. When mine would be hot it would not start but it would start right up when it was cold.

You would start the pack the Sunday after the first day of your period. Even if you are bleeding still that Sunday, take it.

I was told to start the Sunday after my period starts, even if I'm still bleeding. And if I were to start my period on a Sunday, then I would take my first pill on that Sunday. My pills have the day marked next to them as they go around the circle and it starts out with a Sunday...so I believe that is the reason behind what I was told.

I believe it starts August 10th The first day of school depends on the district and sometimes even the school itself. It would be best to check with your school to find out when school starts for you.

I would first have the battery checked. It sounds like a weak battery. It could also be the computer. In fact, there are a number of possibilities but the first thing I would check would be the battery.

cold start switch on the side of or on top of the throttle body.

User Avatar

Could be the immobiliser, try disconnecting the battery for 30minutes a then connect it back up and try starting it again!!

A right handed batter would get to first base first because a left handed batter has to take extra time turning around to start running.

The week starts on Monday. Take for instance if you just got a new job and you boss told you to start work the first day of next week, he would be telling you to come to work on monday. Or you can look at it this way what do you consider the weekend? Saturday and Sunday. Right? If so how can your week start on Sunday if Sunday is considered part of your weekend?

Yes you can. You battle the other player as you run around and hit each other so they lose stars. As I know you can play as Yoshi, Mario, Luigi and I think Wario

It is unlikely that you would begin cramping right away. The first cramping you should notice would be around the time of your implantation bleeding.

The first thing to look for is an air leak in the intake, I would start looking first for either a loose connection of carb to the rubber intake or cracked rubber .
