truck stalls when cold

I have a 93 F250 5.0 V8. Every time i drive the truck and the engine is cold it wants to stall, if i come to a complete stop i have to put it in park and wait until the traffic is gone so i can go. once the engine warms up its fine and i can stop or reverse and it wont stall. when its cold it stalls and when i try to start it back up i have to crank it for about 30 seconds before it starts. i replaced the fuel filter and it didnt do anything, it needed to be changed but it didnt fix it. i also cleaned out the throttle body, it didnt do anything for when the engine is cold but when it warms up it runs better then it used to. If the truck warms up then i turn it off and go inside when i start the truck again if it cools back down it will stall like it did before. This is an old problem i just haven't gotten around to fixing yet

Possibly Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor ?

Run this test and see if it comes up with anything. Ford Fuel Injection » How To Run a Self-Test

Re: truck stalls when cold

Thanks.. the local Advanced auto parts store has free engine scans. i could do that instead of the self check right?

Re: truck stalls when cold

Some places don't check the OBDI systems. If they do, theat would be great.
