May be dirty fuel in tank or dirty throttle body...try 2 bottles of Lucas Oil Fuel injector cleaner...maybe one bottle of "HEET" to gas also to reduce water or sludge in tank...worth trying before paying to have your system cleaned...hope this helps.

Ford taurus limited 2012 difficult to start in cold weather.this car have lot of electric equipement.do you think the battery is not strong enough


If the car starts normally in warm weather then the battery capacity will be sufficient. Cold weather decreases a battery efficiency so if the battery is just making the grade in warm weather then it will fail in cold weather. have a load test done on the battery by an accredited battery supplier. If the power requirements have been increased beyond manufacturers fitted equipment then it may be necessary to consider a larger capacity alternator. have the battery checked first as I think that is where your problem will be.

Engine stalls especially in cold weather or when the engine is cold. This is mostly when I'm just starting the engine. When run for a while, the engine performs just fine. Recently, the engine stalls...


Hi,
This sounds like you have a faulty cold start sensor which helps the engine with more fuel when it is cold...
Have this checked.
Thanks
