Espace 2.0i No power on cold startup

Post by paulsnook » 15 Mar 2001, 21:55

Has anyone come across a problem when engine is cold ?
The car always starts and ticks over, but if you pull away before the engine is a little warm there is no power and the engine hunts as if ignition problem. Already replaced the water temp sensor and air flow sensor, and garage has "programmed" ECU to no avail. Also when engine very hot if it stalls, the engine will not restart for 10 minutes!!!

Had a vaguely similar problem inthat engine was very rough on cold start and wouldn't pull properly. I also replaced temp sensor to no avail but eventually found problem was caused in a break in the wire leading to the sensor. Hope this helps if it isn't too late now!
