why does my 2002 lincoln have a hard time starting in the morning
i usually have to crank it over 4-5 times before it starts but once it starts it will restart all day with out fail but the next morning it has a hard time getting started why is this and what is it please help
Have you checked the battery voltage in the morning before you start? Assuming all else is OK with the car - the first thoughts are the battery not holding a charge. This could be a failed or failing cell(s) and require a replacement. Or possibly some accessory that is draining the battery when it sits for awhile. Is there anything plugged into the cigaret lighter outlet?
well it has enough power to crank over for 5-7 sec about 6-7 times before it starts it doesn't have any problems turning over and even if i dont start my car again till 8 that night it will start with out fail but the next morning it starts all over again, weird
Fuel pressure is the first thing I'd check, could be a bad pressure regulator, then the injectors, they could be leaking down overnight causing a flooded condition the next day, might check to see if it blows black smoke when first started overnight.
