Question about 2002 Ford E350

1 Answer

2001 Ford E350 dies after cold start.

I have a Ford E350 with the Tritan 5.4l engine. The past few weeks we have had problems with the inital start of the day. It fires up fine but as soon as I let the gas off it dies. Runs fine after warms up but have to keep the gas on until that point. It's almost like a switch is flipped and it all the sudden runs great. Seems to be taking longer and I'm not sure if it is related to the cold, since we just had a radical cold snap. (At least for Oregon)

The idle sensor needs changed. Could be that there is dirt in your gas line, or if it's an injection type motor, maybe your injectors are dirty. Could also be your gas filter, or gas pump, when was the last time you changed your gas filter? YOU might want to look at the above, hopefully it won't cost you much to repair.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas


This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.
