2000 mercury sable will not cold start. With either quick start it runs good. When I shut it off after running. It will start but it stutters and stalls and it takes a few seconds to regain power.

    I also suggest an air intake problem. If your idle air control valve is sticking open, your cold engine will get a ton of unwanted air.
