    These don't have a choke unless it is a 2.8L V6, all others arwe fuel injected.

    Sounds like a blown head gasket, very common on all Aerostar's, is the cooling system rusty or dirty?

How come my truck blows out white smoke for the first minute after starting it and then is fine after that???


the white "smoke" is probably water vapor from combustion in cold cylinders
as the engine warms up it is super heated in the hot exhaust system and is no longer visible to the eye

My fiat scudo has loss of power when I start it in the morning it gives white n blue smoke after 15 minutes it's back to normal can any1 help


Sounds like a bad seal of some sort, heavy white smoke indicates coolant entering the cylinder heads while bluish smoke is oil burning. It could be that itgoes away when it heats up because the metal expands and closes the gap. Check your oil as well as when a head gasket is bown there is normally a milkyness to it.

Fiat scudo starts and runs for 8 secs then cuts out


8 seconds and stall,..

Sounds like you're starting fine and there's no apparent problem with the engines electrical impulses in regards to wires, plugs, coil etc,..

Which it sounds like you're running off residual fuel but continuous fuel supply is being disrupted.

I'm all but certain if you pull a SP it'll have unburned fuel on it. Check your fuel pump, filter, pressure regulator and injectors

From those symptoms the pump could be faulty, filter clogged and only feeding seepage, the regulator could be flooding it out ot the injectors aren't opening { clogged }

What do you get when you try to press the accelerator when it's running or have you not tried that?
