I have a 1987 ford courier ute. Having trouble starting it on cold mornings. Had a full service done on it and everythings fine. It will turn over, run for a minute then cut out, then try and start it...

Im not familiar with this model you mean its a van anyway it sounds like an ignition problem bad wires or out of gap spark plugs and what did the full service consist of be specific please I'm not there to easily ask you questions the cooler damp air will cause the spark to leak out easily to ground on bad wires this is definitely an ignition problem
