Weird Question- Need To Induce Cold Rough Running/stalling

Recommended Posts

Ok, here's a weird question for everyone-


I was looking at an 02 Taurus wagon with the 3.0 12V, runs fine now (to be my secondary vehicle). However, there's a project I'm on where I need to deliberately have it be 1. Somewhat hard to start when cold, 2. Sputter and stall a lot when warming up, but 3. Be mostly fine once it is warmed up. What can I put on that will not do any long term damage to the car (in other words, put it back to ok when I'm done with the project)?

Buy my wagon. Sorry, just could not resist. Sounds like you are setting up a shop diagnostics problem for an Industrial Arts class.

As penance, I Googled the symptoms and found this site:


One of the respondents suggested the coolant temperature sensor would cause this problem.
