I have a 95 Ford Windstar that stalls randomly after I run around for about 45 minutes or longer. It doesn't always do it. Once it stalls, when you try to start it, it will run very rough for 30 seconds then it will stall again. Then if you let it sit for an hour it will start and run fine. Sometimes, if you try to start it too soon, it will run for 3 min and then stall. What is going on?

Hello, 2001 Dodge ram 5.2 2 wd automatic very hard starting after sitting a day or 2. Crank and crank and then it kinda fires then stumbles and finally starts.

2000 powerstroke chops real bad on start up when it has sat for about a week. It smooths out after about 10 seconds and runs fine. Colder temperatures make it worse. If I start it every couple days it doesnt do it no matter how cold it is. If it was glow plugs I would think it would do it on every cold temperature start. Could it be oil pressure? I got the same rough start when I didnt fill the oil filter with oil when servicing. Any ideas?
