Seems like my 2008 Chery QQ 1.1L does the same thing. It takes me about 4 to 8 20 second cranks to get it to turn over. Once it is warm then no problem starting.

I am thinking it has something to do with the fuel system somewhere like a pressure leak in the line.

Funny but true, I have found out that by rocking the car back and forth side to side for about five seconds and while still rocking I turn the key and it will usually start a lot easy that way. Give it a try.

If you find out what is wrong please let me know so I can get mine fixed. Thanks Mike Bucannon

I charged the CAMSHAFT POSITION sensor, the CRANKSHAFT POSITION sensor, the SPARKPLUGS, then I thought it might be the head gasket... I even changed that. with no difference to this cold start problem. I am now so 'gatvol' of this QQ.

My qq 0,8 does not start when cold. It takes about 2-3 minutes of continuous cranking to start. It starts when I kick start it, but it has to be a long down hill. When it's hot it starts immediately. I don't know what to do next. Please let me know if anyone has a solution.

Hi, I'm experiencing the same problem with my Chery QQ 0.8 (2011). The engine takes 10 to 15 minutes of cranking to start if the car has been standing for more than +- 2 hours. Diagnostics show no error. The following items have been replaced so far: Cam Shaft sensor, Crank Shaft sensor, Battery, spark plug cables, clutch kit and a full service was done. Nothing of the previous list made any difference to the problem.

Has anyone find a solution yet? Please let me know if you had.

Thanks,
Andre

I have a 2009 QQ3, so many problems. Been in the garage for over 2 years and had 3 engine overhauls. It has erratic idling, slow to rev, no power, cannot drive it.
It has had all sensors replaced, cylinder head worked, cam belt, new valves and seats, catalytic converter removed,new rings, all bearings and seals from gear box up, new coils, spark plugs and leads, its like a new engine. It just won't run.

What have they missed, I am desperate.

Engine is like motorcycle engine and has valve shims on it .After service shims must be reset on the valves.Shims are there to tell you when your vehicle needs a service.The shims will keep the valves open when the engine needs a service resulting in difficulty to start when cold because it will drop the compression in the cylinder .Get a machanic to set sth shims or take it to your closest motorcycle shop

I have the same problem with my qq 1.1 only 50 000km on the clock. In winter it don't start in the morning. Think it has to do with the alarm or some electrical problem.

Cherry QQ also with this problem. When it's hot it runs like a BMW but early mornings and after long standing, cranking it to heaven and push start it is the only way.
PLEASE HELP. I am getting to the point of putting it on fire but fuel is to expensive.
