Hi, most of the time, this will occur when there in a minor clog within the fuel filter. minor or major blockages will, in time, ruin the fuel pump as well. Replacing the fuel filter will fix this hard start. If you have not had an extensive tune up lately, it would be a great idea to do so if possible. I would also recommend adding a fuel injector cleaner to the fuel tank to clean out the water and clean the injectors as well. this additive will also scrub the intake as well. Check the coil or distributor for optimal operation.

Please rate and god bless:)

1972 olds 98 455ci starts and runs fine when its cold but once i've driven it for awhile it starts sputtering like its running out of gas

sounds like a vapor lock. older cars needed a set of points . they kept firing times in sync with fuel delivery , valves opening/closing try that.

You need more information. I would start looking for a vacuum leak, especially if the mass air flow sensor is still not giving the desired readings. The O2 sensors will likely also be off.
