1993 Ranger 3.0 4x4 5 speed. When it is cold it starts and stalls out twice, on the third try it starts and idles and runs well.

I'm curious as my 4.0 does this only when cold. New coilpack, plugs/wires, fuel pump/filter, air filter, injectors, intake gaskets, iac valve, and o2. Still does it. Other sensors test good on my multimeter.

You try turn the key forward then off then on then off then on? so fuel pump fills lines to full pressure. I had a car that the pump or regulator would leak by and did not hold full line pressure it would start first try after i did this. just a shot in the dark but if it works it might narrow it down some for you..

Edit: didnt see the cold thing. mine did it all the time so may not be the case.

Possible old gas? It been sat for about 1 1/2 year or longer with full tank of gas.


Have you check IAC sensor. My 94 Explorer 4.0L did that at random times it was carbon filled in IAC sensor's port.

New fuel and seafoam fixed the problem.
