I have a 1997 Lincoln Towncar. Lately it has been stalling at intersections right as I start accelerating from a stop. This only happens when the engine is cold and when I come to an intersection within 5 minutes of starting the engine. When I go to start it, for 5 to 10 minutes it rolls over but doesn't start. I know it's NOT the battery because the rolling over stays steady and strong. Eventually it does start, but the next time I start it cold it will do it again. I did notice the fuel filter was in backwards so I replaced the fuel filter correctly  hoping that's all it was. I was wrong. Can anyone help?
