FORD TAURUS COOLANT PROBLEM

2001 Ford Taurus • 80,000 miles

When you first start the car and put it in drive it bucks and jumps. Never tries to go dead but it runs very erratic. When it fianally warms up it runs fine. What does it sound like it needs?

Check fuel pressure. Check motor mounts. Check idle control valve. Check coolant sensor.
Check mass air flow, if equipped

Could be misfiring from the engine or harsh shift of transmission. Start by checking for trouble codes.
