Answers :

If it starts with a shot of WD-40 then fuel delivery is obviously a problem when cold. If intake air temperature sensor ( for one) is telling it that its still real warm out, then it won't give it enough fuel to start on a cold day, which requires more fuel.
Did u disconnect the battery for 10 minutes after replacing the sensor? if not do so and check again for engine hesitation, let me know if u need further assistance..

2001 dodge 2500 diesel turns over but won't start as soon as weather gets to about 5 degs celsius. Works fine as long as warm out. Once running all is good,no smoke,good mileage?If you give it one little sniff of either it fires right up. There is a new lift pump on it now,no leaks that i can find. Fuel mileage is still good, just doesn't want to start when it gets cold out.

When my taurus has sat overnight...or when it's cold. When I start it, it acts like it wants to die...then it revs up all of the sudden and seems fine. The gauge goes in between 0 and 1 for a few seconds than it revs up to 2 and slowly idles down to around one. I only have this problem when it's cold outside or if the car has sat overnight. What could be going on?
