I had this problem with my Sport Trac in the winter especially. What octane gas do you use? All my problems went away when I went to 87 octane vs 93 or 89 octane (go figure) My brother is the vehicle expert, and he recommended that for me. Whatever octane the owners manual recommends, I would start there (easy). If that is not any help, I'm sorry, but I tried.

Wont start sometimes idles rough when first start, cut off


Do you check for codes every time you have a problem?
You know it isn't temperature related.
You know that pressing the gas pedal won't change computer input under certain conditions
How do you know you have fuel pressure? Do you drive with a gauge taped to the windshield?
Why didn't the shop repair it?
I would get a wiring diagram and check all grounds
Then scan the Throttle Position Sensor. As in, put a scanner or oscilloscope or volt meter on it.
Go through the entire system until you resolve it

Doesnt always start, but lights, radio, AC/heat does come on.


First place to check is the battery. Old ones can push your lights , radio, etc, but the starter is the real load. . Can verify this by using jumper cables to a running vehicle and watch your machine fire right up! The reason mornings are the worst, is the battery has had the most time to discharge, and it is probably cooler outside.
