Question about Ford Ka
Car runs fine from cold and continues to do so unless stop engine for 10 minutes or so then after starting again a few minutes later loses power. Doesn't stall but idles rough. Revs up ok but no real power if driving along. After a few minutes again runs fine again. Appears to be temperature sensitive but only for a few minutes. Any ideas?
Sounds to be symptomatic of a CTS (coolant temperature sensor). there are two, one is for the interior temp gauge, the other is for the ECU/PCM while both are basicalty the same part, often even the same P/N, they both do extremely different things.

SOURCE: rough idle stalls at low rpm's
hello first check your idle with the car running foot on brake see were your rpm reading is if your below 500rpm check your label underhood for your curb idle setting second see if theres a adjustment screw you can increase were your gas cable lever rest against your set screw underhood if you feel confident enough remove your iac motor idle air control valve if the bore were the end of the pintle extracts out to close has varnish builup our carbon it will stick creating vacuum leak type senario causing stalling rough idle sometimes even no start conditions good luck

Sounds like a fuel problem , have you changed the fuel filter in a while ? could be the knock sensor or the knock sensor module needs to be replaced.

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.
