Mine wont start when cold - 2000SLE
I'm stumped and mechanics herer too. Colder weather sets in. 2 years in a row now and towing bills. I'm flustered. My Bonneville always pops right off when starting in summer. As weather cools, the starting "feels more whimpy" even though cranking force is high. The car was in the service garage for 2 weeks last year with no problem found...started everytime for them. This Friday it was in the service gargage all day...different repair facility, different mechanics. The car started all day for them. Yesterday, it was 38 degrees. I went to start and it just cranked. The second attempt it started running like it was on 3 cyclinders and continued spitting & sputtering until it died. White smoke rolled out of the exhaust. The third attempt it started and the same thing. The third attempt it started, spit a bit, white smoked alot, then cleared and run smoothly. So I shut it off and stayed home fearing another $125 tow bill. Anyone else experiencing this?
I can't even sell it like this. Any ideas? Thank you!!!!!
