Cold engine shuts down when starting
I recently (August) purchased a 2004 Jeep Liberty and this is my first winter with the car.
When starting cold engine in morning the engine starts and runs for a few seconds then
shuts down, electric system stays on. After letting the car sit for a while (say few
minutes) then try to start again and most times it starts. This does not happen every
time, more so the colder it is.
Possibly a bad IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor or coolant temperature sensor. Will it stay running with your foot on the gas pedal? Any black smoke? If so, that's a good indicator that it's "loading up" with fuel. Again, pointing to those sensors. HTH. -Jim
It will not start even after it sits for a while. It's still to cold and I don't know what to do. There's no smoke and it won't stay on while the gas is being stepped on.
