Won't start 'cold temperatures'
Having some problems with my g/f's '99 cougar V6. Just got rid of all the codes a few months ago for inspection and now we're having starting issues.
The starter will spin the engine plenty fast, full batteries, but engine doesn't always want to start. It will spin sound like it catches but then it doesn't. Usually you can try again and it will fire.
It has gotten worse more recently. It was raining and cold yesterday (mid 40's) and the car wouldn't start. Kept acting like it was going to catch but it wouldn't. After trying almost a dozen times (waiting time in between each try) she finally got it fired up. Once its on it runs strong. We just hit the 100k mark. I did a tune up on it 5k ago.
My thought is some sort of an intake sensor. MAF sensor maybe?
Any help would be great. Need the car to stay reliable as it has been in the past...
