Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
This happens because it's not getting enough fuel into the cylinders at startup. The "squirter" in your carburetor is not squirting on the older ones, but for the '97 with EFI or TBI, the problem is that the computer is not putting it in cold start mode. Computers can only to what the sensors tell them to do. Problem here is your temperature sending unit/sensor is stuck in open,or warm position. Replace the temperature sending unit/heat sensor in the intake manifold and all will be well. Check first that the wire is even plugged on the sensor. That has happened.
