Question about Ford E-Series Van
Some days my van starts very easy and other mourning's I turn it over and doesn't fire up for awhile. I coughs and sputters for awhile before it finally starts. It runs fine after it starts. I live on the coast so it basically is the same tempature every mourning. Do you have any suggestions on what it might be, and how it can be fixed?
Ignition components. Replace plugs, wires, rotor, cap, and possibly coil. Could also be fuel pump, as they can sometimes come and go.

My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.

after you replaced the fuel pump did you replace the fuel filter also check out the EGR valve and all vacuum lines especially the one behind the throttle body

Check the fuel pressure, bad fuel pump or sock on the fuel pump and fuel filter check spark plugs and check distributor cap, a fuel pump is $273.00 or a bad injector $110.99 or BWD Fuel Vapor Pressure Sensor for $35.99 any of these parts could cause the problem, so without doing a fuel pressure test it is a guess, if the vapor switch is bad it could cause a long crank time if the fuel pump is bad it has a check valve in the fuel pump, if the check valve goes bad the pump can't maintain fuel pressure so on start up the fuel has to pump from the tank all the way up to the fuel rail, if the injectors is bad it could leak after engine shut down and cause you to lose fuel rail pressure. Also the fuel vapor sensor could be stuck open and could cause the problem, all need to be tested, you can rent the fuel pressure tester from AutoZone or advance auto or Shucks they return your money when you bring the tool back as long as you buy the parts to repair it from them. That would be the first thing I would check fuel pump pressure and if you replace the pump then change the fuel sock as well. That model was not meant to burn ethanol and can kill the fuel sock the fuel pump and filter.

Get a tune up and especially have your injectors cleaned. Most FI vehicles have a cold start injector which if they are dirty could cause poor starting conditions when the vehicle is still cold

It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.
