Restart

Asked by May 21, 2017 at 12:38 AM about the 1996 Ford F-150 XL LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ford F-150 first initial startup when
engine is cold starts fine and if I shut it off
and restart it immediately no problem but if I
wait any longer than 2 to 5 minutes it will
shutter like it has a bad mis-fire and if I hold
down on the throttle it will straighten out and
run fine or it will continue to shutter and try
to stall out I have had a lot of ideas thrown
out to me but none of them seem to have
any merit any information on the situation
would be appreciated
