Ford explorer cold start problem
Apr 3, 2011 (8 years ago)
i have a ford explorer that will not tick over on start up from cold, i have replaced the idle control valve but still the same problem until the engine starts to warm up, when warm the lpg system comes in and it runs perfectly, can someone help me please.
Kind Regards Clive.
ps: someone has told me to replace the seals on the inlet manifold, as it cold be drawing in to much air and running to lean on petrol, what do you think?

Check engine coolant temp sensor which sends info to ECU that engine is cold and needs more fuel on start up , amongst other things .
