Have your battery tested. It might have a bad cell causing it to not have enough "COLD" amps of cranking power.

Purge the air out of the fuel lines at the filters and pump. Some times it's easier to crack open the bolt on top of the injectors one at a time to remove the air bubles traped between the pump and injectors. You might want to check the ohm resistance on fuel heater. Using a ohm meter connect to the two wires connected to the heater, the ohm reading at 40 degrees will be 1 ohm. and at 80 degrees it will be 1,000 ohms. If not to this scale replace the fuel heater. If no power to heater look at the relay next to the brake master cylinder. Hope this will help you.

DTC P0113 is Intake Air / Charge Temperature Sensor High,
Check wiring to the sensor and if that is good then the sensor may be dirty or bad.

the link below shows what it looks like and has a price for the sensor.

If this is a diesel engine you probably have an air lock in the fuel system. It will need "bleeding" before it will start. If you have already tried bleeding the fuel system there may be an air lock in the injectors. If it still doesn't start I suggest you carry out a compression check because diesel engines need to be in good condition to start easily, especially in cold weather If it is a petrol engine, there could be problems with engine timing or ignition problems.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?


Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

03 dodge ram 1500 crew cab 4.7l v8 starts fine when cold but won't start after it is warm


First i would check the crank sensor by looking for rpm's on the tachometer or scan tool if you see any rpm's then crank sensor is good.Then check for leaking injectors and if they are not leaking then you will need to check the ECM it may have failed.

92 cabriolet starter gets hot and won't start for an hour


if it is a problem starter ( over hot starters for proximity to exhausts) is not uncommon
many manufacturers provide a high performance starter as a replacement and that overcomes that problem
it has fewer windings but use heavier wiring and are used for high performance , high compression engines
the other fix is to manufacture a heat shield around the starter to keep the exhaust heat away
if you go the new starter talk with the auto electrician as they may have to get it from the auto electrical wholesaler
you may get it from a speed/ performance shop but I doubt if it come a auto parts shop
