Asked by Jan 07, 2013 at 11:43 AM about the 1998 Ford Falcon

Question type: General

1 Answer


Possibly a faulty coolant temperature sensor or leaky injectors, it happens when they get older, the leakage will cause a rich mixture situation making it too rich for the spark to ignite. You can check by removing the spark plugs after trying to do a hot start and checking them for fuel.
