SOURCE: 00 accord hard time starting

On my 89 accord it would only start in cool or cold weather never hot. I had to replace the main relay that's tucked way up under the dash. I got my mechanic to do it. No problems since.

SOURCE: Code po101, hard start when hot (have to hold W.O.T. to start) & stumbles on accelertion. Changed MASS sensor, no help.

Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. The PCM detects that the actual MAF sensor frequency signal is not within a predetermined range of the calculated MAF value for more than 4.0 seconds.  I would try cleaning out your MAF sensor with some carb cleaner and reseting the check engine light to see if it comes back on.  If it does, get back on here and let us know and we will walk you through some other things you can try.  Cleaning it out will be the easiest/cheapest thing for you to try right now.  Good luck.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

SOURCE: when transmission gets hot starts shifting hard

low fluid.

Get the level checked and topped up, or have the fluid replaced.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Ranger hard to start when cold. must

you may just have a weak battery, or a battery that is not designed for the cold. I would recommend having your battery test at your local autoparts store.

Why jeep shuts dow when gets hot and it hAS A HARD TIME STARTING


It shuts down when it gets above a certain temperature because the manufacturer set it up that way so the engine won't destroy itself if it gets too hot. It starts hard when it is hot because everything inside the engine is too hot and the metal expands so everything is too tight.
If this is your problem you need to get it fixed right away. It may be as simple as low coolant level or a bad rad cap or more complicated like a bad water pump.Check the coolant level yourself and add coolant if it is low.Otherwise, a trip to your local garage can pinpoint the problem in a very quick amount of time.

Hard starting at times when hot excessive cranking engine will kick back the next time it will start perfect


This happens when the engine trys to fire on the first "upstroke' of the pistons before those big flywheels get to spinning. This is common on stock ignition systems as far as I know. Harley may have changed the systems and I might not know about it but I doubt it. Some aftermarket systems, such as the Crane HI-4 have a spark delay system. The plugs will not fire until the engine has turned over three times. This gets those flywheels spinning and eliminates the start up kick back.

good luck

you need to check this when it does not start fuel pressure at the fuel rail , spark at the plugs, power at the fuel injector wire that will tell you whats wrong . if there is no fuel pressure its a bad fuel pump swap the relay with another one to test it if still no pressure the pump is bad . if you have fuel pressure and wont start spray starting fluid in the throttle body see if it starts this tells you if its spark or fuel if it does not start its spark possible bad distributor or coil if it does start that means you have spark and with fuel it will run meaning your injectors are not firing = no power at injectors = bad crank sensor its 38.00 at auto parts stores driver side top of trans bell housing make sure you push and hold it down when tightening the bolt

Starts but shuts right off!!!


Sounds like the idle speed motor is not working or very dirty throttle body.
You would have to remove the black plastic hose on top of the throttle body and get a cleaner(throttle body cleaner or carb. cleaner) and spray it down into the opening.
If you have a hard time starting because of the liquid in the throttle body, try holding down the gas pedal while starting.
