Taurus Stalls with Cold Start
Ive been having a problem when cold starting my 2005. If it sits over night in the cold, when I try to start it the next day it will turn over just fine and start, but once it gets towards normal speed (probably around 800RPMs), it dies. Its fast, like its just not getting fuel. If I give it gas, I can keep it running and it goes fine. If it does die, I can just turn the key again and it starts right up and is great for the day. (I even let it sit at work for over 6 hours, with no problems.)
I know the battery is probably weak, but it always starts and Im not sure that would cause it. Could it be the fuel pump? The 2000 never did this...
