Hello. I have a 2000 Ford Windstar, and recently it's been having a
problem idling at startup. After sitting for a long time (cold
engine) and I start the car, it will just die. I have to hold the gas
pedal to maintain idle. After maintaining idle for about 10-20
seconds, something clicks in, because from that point on, everything
runs perfectly fine for the rest of the day. This occurs every day.
There is no check engine light on. Does anyone have any ideas as to
any possibilities here?
It looks like it was the IAC. I cleaned it with fuel injector
cleaner and so far it's starting well. If this happens again soon,
I'll have to replace it, but doing it myself is no big deal...
