My 1987 ford bronco 2 is having problems running while cold. especially if I drive for a few minutes and then shut it off. I come back out of the store or whatever and it acts like it's being flooded out. It sputters and dies horribly. It's the 2.9 liter v6. Once it is fully warmed up it runs great

Could be a ECT or ACT sensor, have you pulled the codes? Go to:http://www.troublecodes.net/ford/

Thank you. I'll try the sensor. As for pulling codes, I am unfamiliar with this. I'm a longtime dyi backyard mechanic that fixes problems through process of elimination. If it involves a "brain box" I avoid it. haha

As time goes on even the DIY'ers are going to have to learn OBD systems if they want to even fix their own cars, eventually the old cars will all but disappear as daily drivers, you will only see them on special events.
