Petebert,
Why are you putting your foot on the gas pedal to begin with?
I have started it as many as 10-15 times, only to have it stall out as soon
as I lift my foot off the gas. It will run ok if I keep my foot on the gas
..
With the electronic ignition, you shouldn't have to touch the pedal to
start it.
Just curious, John

i put my foot on the pedal when it fires, if not it stalls, normally it acts
like a fuel injected engine should and runs when you turn the key

i posted mine on the 23rd, I havent found a cause or resolution yet , it
hasnt done it for the last 2 days, I replied to yours because you mentioned
something about moisture and mine happened on a rainy day.

haynes manual says to check wires at distributor, coil or alternator.
intake manifold vacuum leaks
poor fuel pressure
and fuel injection or engine control malfunction as possible causes

You would think if all those items are possible solutions, that somewhere a code
would be set that could be read with a decoder and give you somewhere specific
to look.

Check the IAC motor, that is the Idle Air Control motor. Sounds like the
engine is not getting enough air at idle and is being flooded as the
computer commands more gas for a cold engine.

Hello Petebert,
In your first reply, you said you posted a problem in "windstar stall on start",
but I couldn't find it.
Can you tell me what your problem was, did you get it fixed, and what was the
fix?

Also to Chowrunner, the only reason I keep my foot on the gas is to keep it from
stalling. When the problem isn't there, the car will start without touching the
gas pedal.

Chowrunner,
Good suggestion about the codes. I'll ask my Ford mechanic, although he did say
that without the check engine light coming, or if he didn't have it while the
problem existed, he didn't thinkthere would be any codes stored.

Thanks Mercon. I'll add that to my list of things to have checked. he car
has been running great for the last few days, which compounds the problem
