I have a 96 tbird lx v-6 and i had the original 146,000 mile engine removed and put in a 66,000 mile used engine off a 96 cougar and the mechanic did a great job even shine up the whole underhood like u see those used car dealers do eheeh.

The only issue was since the engine eas off a cougar car the stock thermostat senor for the cluster temp gauge gave the inside temp gauge a false to high of a reading looking like the really hot, i took it back and he put the old temp sensor off my old engine.

I do notice seems like sometimes not all the time but when starting the car without giving it any gas it has trouble starting because theres not enough gas if i press the gas pedal to give it gas it'll fire up quickly. Is there something that i should check for could it be the gas filter?

It could be. I had a similar problem on my Explorer and it was the IAC sensor.

I agree with Joe, it could very well be the IAC motor. It sounds like it isn't opening enough when you try to start the car, so you have to let additional air into the engine by pressing the accelerator (which opens the throttle blade).

That's the IAC motor. It's bolted to the top of the throttle body with two bolts. You can take it off and try cleaning it (it may just be sticking), or you can try a new one.
