Hard starting, rough idle when cold, then smooth running when warm


Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.

When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.

Hard starting and rough idle


The idle valve is the most common problem for hard starting in cold weather. I would recommend having it removed and inspected for contamination. Sometimes they can be cleaned out. If it has heavy carbon buildup, you may have to replace it. (if the idle valve is removed, the shutter inside should easily move when you rotate it from side to side and you can also look at it with a flashlight for a visual inspection.

1988 lincoln continetal new fuel pump acts like it is out of gas


You have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor). It controls the idling speed for all conditions i.e.cold, warm, AC on It's not uncommon for a TPS to work perfectly under one condition and fail under another for instance, it will idle fine when cold but once it warms up you need a foot on the gas to keep it running. Best of luck with your problem.
