Cold Start


Recommended Posts

A couple of times now my 2003 used IS200 (6500 miles on the clock) has had trouble on cold days (1-3 deg c)

The usual turn the key and it takes a good few seconds before the engine tunrs over.

Normal or not? reason i ask is my corsa never had such troubles even after 6 years. Turn the key, started first time every time.

Ive only had the IS for about 3 weeks but bought it used, only just had a service and low milage.

Thanks

I don't know if I should say this, as it might be tempting fate, but I haven't had any probs with cold starts YET. It was 0deg this morning and it started fine.

I don't suppose you have a low Battery ?

After getting my first IS in 2003 I used to have trouble starting it. I'd jump in and just wind the key round and find that it needed a good two or three turns before it started. The advise I got from this board was to get the ignition on and leave it there for a couple of seconds, wait for some of the pre-start checks to finish and then start. No problems after that.

Now I have an IS300 I find on cold mornings, (below freezing) it needs three or four cranks before the engine starts. I have mentioned it to the dealer who asked me to monitor it for the next few days to see how I get on.

Hmmm.....I suppose that's the reason I'm not getting any probs at the mo. I had a diesel before this Lexus, and you have to leave the ignition on for the glow plugs to warm up, so out of habit I do that anyway.
