car will not start below 50 degrees.
Hi I hope somebody can help here. My 1986 mustang has a hard time starting when it is below 50 degrees. I do have to get a new code reader so I do not know if that will help. Here is the problem when I put the key in the ignition and turn, sometimes it starts sometimes not. If I turn the key then push the clutch in then most times it will start as I push the clutch in. Everything that I can think of I have done. Battery and alternator checked\, battery checked, not loosing juice. new battery cables, new cable to starter, new starter, new solenoid, new ignition switch, new ignition, new cluch safety switch behind pedal, spliced new wires to the ignition switch, spliced new wire to solenoid, checked fuses. New spark plug wires the only thing I did not replace is the clutch saftey switch on top of the transmission because I cannot get at it without dropping the transmission. The car is a 5.0 fox body.Once the car is started and drove around town(meaning it is warm)the car will start more often than not. It seems a little moisture in the air also does not help. When I turn the key I hear nothing.
