Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Why will my 2002 dodge intrepid start perfectly in cold weather, but not in hot weather, or as the temperature rises during the day? Priscilla TravisBefore it would only start in cold weather, and not

Priscilla TravisBefore it would only start in cold weather, and not in hot (or normal) weather, I was having a starting problem, and they said the car was not fully engaging in Park, even though it said so. So I have replaced the shift cable, the ignition switch, the neutral safety switch, and the alternator. And now this strange OK cold, but not hot issue with the starting! Help!

Could be the neutral safely switch is still not adjusted properly. With your foot on the brake and the transmission in neutral, move the shifter a little bit in either direction while holding the key in the start position. If the starter engages, the switch needs to be adjusted.

The shifter cable is adjustable in the column. Remove the column covers and see if you can adjust the cable. You problem is with the cable.

Overheating gage when stop & go -2004 chevy tahoe


natural for engine temp to rise in Traffic - Until Themostat opens ) cooling fan sensor kicks on fan . But Antifreeze is not just a Cold weather item . Coolant is Absolutely Necessary for Hot Days . You must be full to recovery bottle setting of cold when checked prior to start up . Coolant for your make / model is Reddish - Pink colour and should have a reading of -25 thats negative 25 degrees the Lower the Better even - 50 .. Why ?? - 50 is 50 %% antifreeze / Coolant Concentrate MIX Gives Hot weather cooling Ability or very cold weather starting / winter HEAT .

BMW 325, hard to start in hot weather.


before you try to start her again in hot weather, open your fuel filler cap, listen for any pressure release, close the cap, and try to start, if this works,then its just heat expansion in the fuel tank, replace the filler cap if this is the case

Will not start on hot day's in the sun.[engine cranks normal]


The normal reason why a hot engine doesn't start is the choke. Your fancy new range rover will have a computer controlled choke that will be activiated by a temperature sensor. maybe this has failed or is disconnected
In my ancient range rover I have a manual choke but essentially the same engine. I know that if the motor is hot I can't start it with the choke on.
The way the choke works is it restricts the airflow into the engine so that there is a richer fuel / air mixture which is needed for a cold start. If the engine is hot and the choke comes on the engiine floods with petrol and there isn't enough oxygen for it too ignite in the cylinders. To start a flooded engine you have to open the choke and crank the motor without pressing the accelerator. This pumps out the petrol vapour and eventually it will fire and start. If the computer thinks it is cold because of a disconnected or faulty sensor it will put on the choke whenever you try and start and the engine will flood.
I think a vapour lock is unlikely unless you driving in extremely hot weather (above 40 degrees celsius).
