In cold weather the 97 taurus will idle for a minute and kills when you put it in gear and start back up after waiting a few minutes. the filter is ok, fuel pump ok, mass air flow sensor is ok, new plugs installed and runs fine once it is warmed up

Check the vaccum hoses to make sure none are off and check the timing and also the drive belt and also check the vacuum hose behind the throttle body

In cold weather, why is there a delay of 2-3 minutes before it will move in drive?


Although you have not shared the mileage on this car, I am suspecting it needs transmission service.
I could say this will fix it, but honesty says it "might" fix it.
I suggest you have the fluid and filter changed.
Unfortunately, many shops today want you to do a "transmission flush". I say no.
Be very cautious, and ask around for an honest place.
There are many that will cheat you.
Some will even take your transmission all apart to "check it out" , and will not reassemble it unless you pay hundreds or thousands of dollars.

My Saturn ion won't start in cold weather. sfter waiting 10 mins it starts with no problem


sounds like a plugged fuel filter,,,changed it lately?? what might be occurring is,,after turning the engine over for a few minutes,,it just cant get the fuel,,,then after sitting the fuel slowly goes threw the filter,, and you get enough for the engine to start,,,clean filters are a must,,,give this some thought,,,their about 10 bucks if you change it yourself.
