Re: Cold Start Issues
MAS on a 2.9L is not very common; only on the California Emission models. Will likely have a BAP/MAP sensor.
Might pull trouble codes also. Found on my '93 Tempo that the CEL was burnt out, sure enough codes were present. Warm engine can cover up fuel delivery problems, but you really can't tell if it's a fuel delivery problem unless the fuel pressure is checked.
Could be a dozen things, how long has it been since it's had a basic tune-up?
