cold start

my uncle is having a problem. 1998 3.0. its like starting a tractor cold without a choke. it cranks for a second, starts, then stalls imediatly. does that 2 or 3 times then stays started. when it does start it idles rough until it runs for a minute. any ideas.

where are the temps sensors at. are there 2 or more temp sensors. i was reading that one tells the computer that the motor is cold and the computer keeps the injectors open longer when cold. where is this sensor?
