Your 1998 ford windstar starts up fine but then stalls unless you rev the engine for a little while but once its running it runs fine until the next time you go to start it any ideas why?
1) fouled spark plugs
2) fuel mixture problem (as from vacuum leak or some such thing) requires O2S feedback to compensate
3) bad IAC, can't move to high-idle position. When engine warms up, desired IAC position closer to stuck position
If your check engine light is on, consider if any stored codes relate to any of the above.

Mercedes, i noticed... that going to cost quite a bit to get fixed. Oh well, I…
Battery is initially dead after leaving lights on push started car as usual but this time when it starts it wont charge and stalls 1992 Toyota manual petrol?
Is there a way to determine whether it is your battery or alternator that needs to be fixed in a 2001 Bonneville?
If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is good. If it stalls and dies as soon as you unhook the battery then the alternator is not good. If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is…

If it stalls and dies it can be a real…
