Fiesta Will Not Start When Cold.

4 posts in this topic

I have a 2002 ford fiesta finesse.

When it is cold in the mornings it will not start.

It turns over and starts for a split second the cuts out.

Starts fine when temp outside is normal.

The coolant level was below minimum so I have topped it up.

I have also changed ht leads and spark plugs.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Test the battery.

Cold batteries can discharge much quicker than warm ones.

Could it still be the battery even if it turns over?

Yeah the car will still try and start but you'll just get like a clicking noise because there isn't enough power to get it going
