But what is your complaint?
All cars have to run lumpy at first when they are cold, because fuel will condense on the inside of the intake manifold. You should always assume it take a while to warm up. It takes 30 seconds for everything to get fully oiled anyway. But a smaller sparkplug gap will improve cold performance, at the sacrifice of mileage.

1800 diesel escort van uneven running when first starting


most likely from faulty injectors
could be from dribbling tips allowing air into the injector that is eventually purged allowing the injector to operate properly
I suggest that the injectors be pulled and reconditioned by an accredited diesel specialist shop

Engine runs very poor when it gets hot


it has a sensor problem or a blocked air filter ?' if its a sensor then its most likely to be the one on the other side of the throttle linkage

Ford tick over problem


Hi there!

A few more things to check for you.-

A vacuum leak in any of the vacuum hoses will cause the ECU to make random guesses at what's going on.

Have you replaced plugs recently - or at all? This is probably the main cause - and certainly worth a try.

Fuel filter should be replaced at recommended intervals - about 3 years.

Clean your leads and HT gear really well with a degreasant. Any losses will be more noticable at tickover than high revs.

Lastly.........wear on cam lobes or timing belt.

Hope it's cheap for you!
Please spare a moment to rate as fixya! if any of this information proves useful. Thanks (I don't get paid for this)
