View Full Version : Cold start problems

12-29-2004, 07:17 PM
So this is my 91 GT with a old 5s-fe

When I fire up the car cold it will stall right away unless I give it some gas. and instead of reving the engine to about it will idle the same as it would warm.

It runs fine after I get it going though. This all started after it got really cold a few times. The car doesn't seem to like that at all.

Any ideas?

sounds like the same problem im having with my 3sgte. some mr2 and alltrac guys say thats its related to the coolant temp sensor. i just got a new one and ill let you know if it fixes the problem...the 5sfe uses the same senosr.

throw sum injector cleaner in and clean out the intake mani and tb, if that dont help , try a tune up, basic tune up. ya know plugs, wires, cap, rotor button, possibly 02 sensor, if that dont do it, maybe the sensor is shot
