Question 2000 F150 4.6L cold weather start

If the temp. outside is like 30 and below whenever I start my F150 it will fire right up but will shut off and may have to restart several times before it will continue to run. Its like the fast idle is not coming in fast enuff to keep it running. Anyone know of what may cause this?

I would imagine its computer related if the truck isn't showing any codes. When was the last tune up done? new plugs & wires might help as an alternative to taking it in for a diagnostic. I'd get the battery/charging system tested as well.

I had a 2000 f250 with a 5.4 liter. It did the same when it was real cold out.
It turned out to be a bad Idle Air Control Valve. Hope this helps.
