I just went through this same issue and it turned out to be the engine cooling sensor, a $50 part.

Sounds like it was flooded. Next time it happens. keep gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold until it fires. water in the gas, or just bad gas can do this. But if you pumped it at all while trying to start it if fuel injected can flood it. Let it sit and try again, or keep gas pedal to ground and hold until starts.

Replace The Throttle Positioning Sensor...When you put Accelerator to the floor ... It rolls the Position Sensor Cam to tell computer etc to put Injectors Etc..into cold start mode...as soon as the motor fires..injectors take over and do their job..The Black smoke is the Extra Gas Put it cylinders to Purge it in a cold Start Mode...Throttle Positioning Sensor..and Yes You Can do It.!!! AutoZone-O'Reillys Etc..Easy Fix !! And Remember Castrol GTX-5-30/ 10-30 !!!

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off


Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
