I have had performance problems I solved mostly but I do not know what to do next.
The difficulty starting especially cold starting in cold temperatures and the delayed acceleration and other acceleration problems and the temperature gauge goes up when stopped at lights. I replaced the radiator, radiator caps, radiator fan, transmission hoses, and I switched to NON Ethanol Fuel.
There is a huge crack in the upper radiator hose. The car's performance improved 82% but I do not know what to do next. Will a bad temperature sensor cause difficulty starting? When I replace the radiator hoses will it improve starting and performance? Does the cracked hose let air inside the radiator?
After I replace the cracked hose, I will do other routine maintenance. New Oil, Oil Filter, Air Filter. What Else? Should I replace Fuel Filter? M.A.P. Sensor? (or just clean it?)
