i have a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0 Liter OHV. I have been having problems starting it when it is under 50 degrees. its seems like it is not getting enough fuel. When i do manage to get it started it seems like it is flooded what could be my problem?

  1. I would start with replacing the spark plugs. If they are worn/old it makes it difficult for them to function as well under cold conditions on initial start up.

    If there is a check engine light on, scan for codes and proceed as needed.

  2. We have replaced the plugs.. wires are fairly new, we also have replaced the fuel filter. The check engine light was on but has gone off for about the past week.

  3. You should still have the codes scanned to see what codes are saved as this may help guide you in the cheapest direction.
