ford E350 won't start when cold.

Asked by Sep 15, 2016 at 12:53 PM about the 1996 Ford E-350 XLT Club Wagon Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ford E350 with 7.5 liter gas engine. It runs
great when the weather is nice but on cold
mornings it won't start. It cranks over just fine. But
the engine won't catch. This morning
temperatures were about 50 degrees so no where
near freezing. And it still wouldn't start. We
struggled with it all last year too. When I heat the
top of the engine with a space heater it will
eventually start. I've already checked for spark and
replaced the distributor cap and rotor.
My guess is that the fuel injectors are gummed up
or something so they have a hard time opening.
But it runs fine in warm weather. Does anyone
have experience with this?
