Car wouldn't start this morning?

Asked by Oct 29, 2015 at 05:48 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 LS Base Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This morning my 04 Chevrolet colorado I5 would not start. It was turning over
but not actually starting. It has done this before, usually during the winter. This
morning was not cold (73 degrees) but it was very humid (99%). Got a ride to
school and when I got back home it started right up. Took the truck to advance
auto parts to have them read a CEL and the code was P0128 which seems to
be corresponding to the coolant thermometer, not something that I feel would
affect a cold engine from starting. Some other info that may or may not be
related: idles rough occasionally, sometimes at night when coming to a stop
headlights dim and then brighten back up once stopped completely, exhaust
leak right before catalytic converter.

Sounds like a tune up or a fuel filter is clogged up.

Try spraying some starting fluid into the air intake. If it starts then you found your problem. Fuel!!! If not then check your timing and timing belt. One of these things should get you going. Take it easy.

But it starts now. Just didn't start this morning. Thats how it always is, only doesn't start for a few hours. Unless you're implying to wait until it won't start again and then try that method.
