Sounds like you have a bad carb. While the choke is on and active it sucks enough gas into the engine to keep it running. To test this problem run the vehicle until it is up to operating temp. Give it the gas and see if it does the miss and sputter thing. Then using a can of either of other flamable carb cleaner spray some into the air cleaner nozzle while the engine is acting up. If it smooths out for a few seconds the the carb is not gertting enough fuel at high rpm. rebuild the carburator paying attention to the fuel ports in case one or more are plugged up. Also look at the fuel level float and see it it is set at the proper height. It has been a while since working on a 22r carb, but I am not sure if thereis a fuel bowl window that you can look at to see the fuel level with a flashlight. it should be at or slightly above the dot on the glass window in the carb. If low it is a fuel problem. Also while working on it check the pressure on the fuel line at the carb. Your service manual should have a recommended pressure for the carb. Regards, rcampsr

I had a similar problem with my 03 i went through the stages as you did. also i had a check engine light come on the read out was for lean fuel mix. I finally figured out it was the intake gasket leaking and when the motor got warm it expanded enough to close the leak. The way i tested that was when the motor was cold i started it and sprayed carb cleaner around the gasket and it almost died out. i'm not sure if that is recommended but that is what i did. I changed the gasket and have not had another problem.

You could have a bad cold start valve, go to an auto parts store and buy the cold start valve and replace it. you will see it on the intake manifold also pull off the air cleaner or hose and get a can of berry mans carb cleaner and clean the throttle plate inside and out then lube the throttle cables with Wd 40 then try it, if it starts your set, if not try pushing the throttle all the way to the floor and crank for 15 seconds then wait one minute then slightly press the gas pedal and try starting again this is how you clear flooded engine. If it starts you know that the throttle plate or cable froze shut and would not allow air into the engine causing it to flood. also check that the O-ring is not missing on the distributor cap which would allow condensation to form inside the cap shorting out the plugs and allowing it not to run. if it does it again pull the cap and look inside the cap if you see moisture then you need to replace the cap and rotor and O-ring.
