Fords are common for this. You can try to replace the choke, spark plugs, and air filter. Clean the carburetor (You can pour transmission fluid in the carburetor to clean it. This will loosen you valves and clean the carburetor. This will cause it to smoke, but it will not last long.) and put fuel cleaner in the gas. Change the fuel filter. In other words do a good tune up. Try NGK spark plugs. Carbureto might also need adjusting.

    I did not realize that this did not have a Carburetor.
    You can still do everything else that I mentioned though. Sorry for not realizing that it did not have a carburetor. Please don't give me a bad rating for not realizing it. I have an older F150 and it has a Carb. It runs like a champ even when it is cold. I did all of the above that I told you to do. You can put the transmission fluid in your fuel tank every now and then and it will do the same thing.

    I hope this help you.

"Idle air control valve" is sticking. Mine did it too. Replace it or take it off and clean it. Also, a good whack with the plastic handle of a screwdriver will unstick it. Carbon builds up and makes it stick. Mine has went 100K without sticking after whacking it with a screwdriver.

Any number of thing's could cause this condition , Weak fuel pump , low fuel volume , an engine sensor , mass air flow for one , A crank sensor that is going bad , cam sensor etc... your best bet would be to have it diagnosed professionally , rather then guessing an just replacing parts

What kind of battery is recomended fora Ford Winstar 1999 in terms of durability and capacity to feed the alternator properly?


There are two different engines Ford installed in the Windstar. The following information is assuming your vehicle has the 3.8 liter v-6...850 cold cranking amps, 750 cold cranking amps, 650 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. It is highly probable that your vehicle has the 3.8 liter, as 94% of Windstars had that engine installed. Hope this helps you out.

What kind of battery can I use for my 2002 model Ford Escape? My car is a 4X4, 2.6 engin size


You sate you have the 2.6 liter engine. Is it four or six cylinders? The number of cylinders is also used to determine the correct battery amps. The following information is for the four cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. The following is for the six cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps or 720 cold cranking amps.

2002 Ford Escape V6 XLT, problem w/ initial start in cold weather


Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

Ford has several recalibrations for the powertrain control modules. Some deal with running rough on cold starts. You could also have a malfunctioning glow plug system.
