You aren't telling me what kind of vehicle you have, so I can only be generic on the advice I am giving. This sounds suspiciously like a failed coolant temperature sensor...the one that supplies coolant temperature to the ECM. When these sensors fail, they tell the ECM that the coolant temperature is about -40 degrees F. This makes the ECM send massive amounts of fuel to the injector(s). This can cause flooding on start-up, and will result in the need to feather and rev the engine at isle to keep using the fuel so it doesn't load up in the cylinders and stall the engine. It won't normally set any engine codes, because when the engine is in "choke" or "warm-up", the ECM allow a much greater variance in the sensor readings from the emissions sensors. It's a relatively simple device to replace and not too costly.

Acceleration problem


possibly camshaft position sensor in the distributor, or weak fuel fump starts acting up when warm, or throttle position sensor. heat has a effect on sensors and electrical components in some weird and hard to find ways.

Fluttering noise in engine while accelerating at a fast rate


I believe you may be referring to 'pinging', Try a tank of premium gas and see if it stops. Check your timing, and when was it last tuned? Let me know what u find. countrycurt0

Flutter type noise when truck gets warmed up


If you have not adjusted the valves that would be a good place to start, 117,000 is not high miles for your engine, but valve lash should be done every 60,000 at least.
