Default 2002 Montero - Cold Start Stall

I picked up a 2002 Montero Ltd with only 92k miles. Aside from having to replace the shifter cable, it has been great. We got it first cold front here in South CentralTexas (over night 40s), and now my truck is acting up. It starts fine, but if I drive it before reaching temp, the vehicle shuts off and the check engine light comes on. It will start right back up, no issue, and if I let the engine warm up, it runs great. I cleaned the throttle body and the maf, and dumed some seafoam in the gas tank - but thats what I had on hand. I haven't gotten it scanned, but I would like to ask the community for their suggestions. Thanks in advance.

You should have it scanned first to get an idea on what the problem is. Why not buy a generic obd2 would be usefull on the montero and any other car you have. For generic codes at least. You can find one on ebay...

Default Thanks

Yeah, I ordered one yesterday (overnight shipping), so I'll have one in hand when I get home from work. I'll post the findings for community insight. Thanks.

Definitely post the Error codes as well as Freeze Frame data for the code(s). That will help in further diagnosis.
