Default This girl's pony won't start.

A more accurate description is that it won't turn over on a cold start. In the morning it just turns over then dies completely. In order to keep the car on, I have to leave my foot on the gas just a bit till it warms up past half way on the temp gauge. Only then will my baby stay on on it's own and run fine.

So which of you tech savy people out there have any solution to my problem?
I appreciate any insight because I'm tired of wasting gas and time.

Thank you!

You might want to check your IAC. Here's a good post about it http://mustangforums.com/forum/4-6l-...-cruising.html

Sounds like you might have similar symptoms.
