I would check the Air Charge Sensor. This sensor measures the temp of the air charge going into the fuel injection system, when you truck is cold it requires more fuel and less air, if this sensor has gone bad it would lean out your fuel mixture as if the vehicle was already warm.

1985 Ford Ranger 2.3 starts and idles good. But when put in gear dies until it reaches full temp.


Hmm...........
1985..........
Probably carb? Automatic choke not working? Remove air filter and spray carb with cleaner, Make sure all parts move freely. With engine cold, check automatic choke position. Start and check function as it warms up.

Ford ranger 1996 4.0L v6 single cab long bed it runs but you have 2 have your foot on the gas it does not stay in idle for more than 5min less than that usually it does not take much gas pedal pressure to...


I would suspect that you have a failing fuel pump, the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off due to a faulty check valve, this causes hard starting esp when cold or after sitting. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump assembly.

Why is glow plug light flashing after boosting in very cold weather?


hi.
in very cold weather, the glow plugs may stay on for up to a minute after starting the car to assist until the engine starts to warm up. the light flashes to tell you that the plugs are still on.
the time the light stays on can vary due to the temperarure.

That happens all over the world and thats because of the cold weather that affect the gear shifter Solenoid that releases the shifter after you press the brake pedal and when its cold the the solenoid get stuck. you might wanna check it or changed if need be. Good luck

My truck when I start it on very cold mornings run rough until you let it run for about ten to fifteen mintues. Then when the weather is warm the truck runs fine. It also has under 69,000 miles.


Count your blessings that it starts. It sounds like the cold air is affecting the idle mixture. Check the hose running from the manifold to the air box to see if it is intact. If not, replace/fix it so that you pull warm air in as soon as the engine heats up.

96 jeep cheerokee won't idle when cold.


its an oldervehicle and sometimes with age they have to be babied to run right.i dont think theres much you can do to make it start and stay running right off the way it used to other than what youredoing now which is probably sitting in it with your foot on the gas until it warms up if my guess is correct. i have a 1994 suburban that i haveto do the same thing to because its just gotten where it doesnt like cold weather.

Ford thunderbird wont start in Cold weather


change distributor cap first and see how it goes could have a crack in it.Failing which you need to test the ignition module when its cold as sometimes a component will break down and not work when its cold ,this is very much a hands on type job so if dist cap doesnt cure it call a mobile mechanic
