SOunds like you are not getting dle enrichment during cold engine operation. Go to AUtozone or other parts store and they can run free diagnostci test for you to see if you hvae a fault code sotred telling you what is the problem.
Possibly injectors need cleaning. Buy a bottle of Techron Injector cleaner & add to fuel tank.
ALso, you MAF mass air flow sensor could be coated. Clean gently with carb cleaner. It is in air cleaner system or tube and has a small wire harness going to it. Good luck.

I have had the same remote starter in my car for 8 years. It worked perfectly before but now if it is starting cold, it immediately stalls. The starter attempts 3 times and it starts then immediately


Have you had a battery test done? Sounds like a weak battery or dirty and loose battery connections. The cold weather doesn't help because it makes your engine oil thicker.

Try turning your car off. Perhaps you got your radio wet with something. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2006 Freestar with a 3.9 Engine . When it is cold it has a miss when i step on it. But it gets better when it starts to warm up. Almost seems like a spark plug miss


Spark Plugs ---change at 70,000 miles
O2 Sensors--change at 100,000 miles (front 2 only)
Gas Filter--every 3 years/30,000 miles
Air Filter ---every 3 years/blow off once every year
MAF Sensor---Clean once a year or more often

Ignition Coils--- most definitely will go bad,at
least 1 a year. (Any Check Lights or Codes ? )

When cold, it isn't in closed-loop, and runs on
Long Term Fuel Trim--not on O2 Sensors ,until
warm

Let it warm up at least 4 minutes in cold weather,
go light on the gas for first 2 miles

I have 2002 chevy avalanche, check engine light comes on only when its cold & runs rough at idle. When warmer weather light goes off & runs fine. Have replaced mass air flow sensor.


Mine did the same thing...at 42F degrees, run bad. After it warm up, it would be fine. This would only happen in the winter. It would throw a code saying it was lean in Bank 1 or 2.
The issue is a contraction of the intake gasket due to the cold weather, when it contracts, it leaks air. There is a new, improved gasket now from GM, or get a Felpro from major auto stores and it will work fine. I consistently had the problem every winter, and this has fixed the problem for the last 3-4 years.

Engine will not idle until warm. then it is just fine


This is normal, as long as the rpm's are not above 2000, this is to heat the engine to it's operating temperature quickly. Once the engine is warm, the rpm's will drop to 600-800RPM.

Rear hatch will not stay open when weather is cold, temps below 45 affect the vacuum on the rear hatch. works fine in warm weather


Those little shocks are gas charged, thus pressure increases in hot, and decreases in cold. Over the years they tend to seep, or leak a bit, thus, only work good in warm/hot weather. They have replacement ones at autoparts stores, and shouldn't be too expensive.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport running too lean in both banks


any of those sensors can cause that but the best thing to do is scan it or check for a vacuum leak with a smoke machine.

The 2000 mountianeer starts and runs fine but shuts off


CHECK THE COLD START ENRICHMENT VALVE AND OR THE IDLE CONTROL VALVE. I AM ASSUMING THAT YOUR VEHICLE IS FUEL INJECTED. ONE OF THOSE HAVE GONE BAD.
