Being you don't say what eng you got, but with your problem I got to think it's got to be a 6.9. You've got a cold start problem. Either the 'Glow Plug' controller is bad or the glow plugs themselves are bad. Either way you need to take to someone who knows wnat they are doing. Don't mean the 'Ford' Dealership. They normally cost too much. Used to work for one. Just someone that you know that deals with desail engines.

SOURCE: wont start when cold

A good chance that this is caused by moisture invading the ignition cables which, if original, are really due for replacement. Try to find a very dark area and check under the hood at night with the engine running. Allow your eyes to become accustomed to the dark and look for any sign of arcing (sparking) under the hood around the cables. If you do, the problem is likely only the cables.
If the originals were not silicone insulated, by a replacement set at any auto parts store. As long as they aren't mechanically damaged, they'll outlast the rest of the car and they are not that much more expensive.
If you don't deem them defective, your coil (coil pack) may be failing or it may also have been attacked by moisture.
If you have an original distributor cap (and possibly rotor) I would recommend replacing these too. Hey, 18 years ain't shabby!

There is a possibility that your temperature sending unit for the computer is not working correctly. ( not the sending unit for the gage, there are two). If the computer never knows that the engine warms up, it will keep "choking" and over fueling. Thus, the black spark plugs.

Common problem with these is a fuel drainback. Use a fuel pump pressure tester, start the engine, If it's multi-port fuel injection the psi should be 50psi+. If 50psi, turn off engine and notice psi drop. If fuel pressure drops off to 10 or 5 psi, try to start engine and watch for a jump in fuel pump pressure. If pressure jumps to 50psi and the engine won't start, then I would suspect a good working fuel pump, if not a jump to 50 psi, I would say bad fuel pump. Good luck, Gary

98 astro awd doesnt like to start in real cold weather (-18C) otherwise runs fine

I have a 98 and we just had a cold snap where it was super cold and I didn't start it for about a week. I had just got a new battery because mine tested out bad. Everything was good but now it doesn't want to get fuel. Cleaned all battery and relay connections and it's turning over great and fires with starting fluid but won't start. Guy at Napa said the fuel pump on these are known to not work well in the cold and suggested to warm the tank. I'm parked outside and can't move it to get it inside somewhere. Anyone know of good solution to this fuel pump not working in cold temps issue?

New battery, new fuel pump. All electrical systems work fine, every time the outside temp is less than 30 degrees, vehicle will not start. Turns over fine, just will not start.

Runs when warm wont start when cold

There is a temperature sensor on the engine. The computer uses the readout from it to feed more fuel during cold start up. If you replace the sensor it should be O.K..
