I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3. When my engine is at ambient temperature, iit will not start. It will crank over and stall right out. Some starts are worse than others, but never the same. I have to hold the accelerator down to get it to idle and keep it down untill the RPMS pick up or it the engine warms up. Once the car is started, the issue does not come up again untill the engine reaches ambient temperature again (cold). The outside temps seem to have no effect on it at all. There is nothing wrong with the chargins system, plugs or wires. Fuel pump weas replaced before, but is not an issue here, no problems while running. I have had so much suggested but no one who has a similar problem posts a sollution on any boards. So far I have heard IAC, MAF, engine temperature sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack, fuel pressure regulator and injectors. I'm not about to just start swapping parts out. Any useful info will be appriciated.
have the same problem?
