Hello. It sounds like it needs a whole new tuneup done to it.

SOURCE: 99explorer when cold out idles rough and smell gas

These Engines use a plastic intake manifold with rubber gaskets sealing them to the cylinder heads. The workshop I worked for had this problem & went through heaps of different scenarios to work it out. Turned out the intake manifold gasket had gone hard & was leaking until the heat of the engine had re-created the seal, which was taking anything from 30 seconds to a minute. It took heaps of testing to arrive at this conclusion & once the gasket had been replaced it was as good as new.

Injector sprays too much fuel after starting. Engine floods out


Suspect (potentially) either a stuck injector, or a failed/failing fuel pressure regulator. One sign of a failed fuel pressure regulator can be gas in the oil. (I suffered that side effect, along with bogging, and black smoke rich running, worsening as warmed up, turned out to be fuel pressure regulator). If the injector is loose in the throttle body, or has bad o-rings, can also cause some wonky behavior. Good luck.

1988 bronco 5.8 wont idle cold floods easy and has a check engine light that does eventually goes out


Try replacing the coolant temp sensor. It could be giving a false reading, telling the computer to add fuel.

2001 sunfire start good cold but not when engine is hot


It sounds like you have a "flooding" problem, where you are getting too much fuel on the warm start. It takes more fuel to start a cold engine than a warm one. By holding the pedal the pedal to the floor, you are telling the computer to do a "clear flood" operation, and that lets you start the car. The culprit is probably the Coolant Temperature Sensor. If this is faulty, it will tell the computer that that the coolant (thus the engine) is much cooler than it really is. This results in the engine flooding when warm. It may also run rough at idle after warm start since it is still getting too much fuel. You will also notice a massive loss of fuel economy. Replace the coolant temperature sensor.

My car starts fine when engine is warm. I turn it off then try starting it again. then starts up and shuts back off. does it like 3 times in a row. then I wait a few minutes then it starts up when I push...


stalls, are complex
if the engine is good (compression at spec)
it this list.
1: lost electric power to EFI system or spark.
2: bad fuel.
3: bad spark.
4: bad fueling. (too much or too little.
5: EGR stuck open
6: ISC dead. or IAC dead. (idle air valves failing cold)

there are tests for each.
cold start failure only ! all else good, engine tuneup done?
1: ECT fibbing like oh'bummer. (signals water temps of alaska in Panama? "floods, and your right foot helps./..........
2: IAC (cold start fast idle air valve bad) same for right foot....
3: check engine light on running? is it?

ECT can cause gross over fueling.
the IAC dead will cause gross under AIR which in fact causes flooding (less air plus same fuel = flood)
bad fuel.

Alfa 164 loses power on accelleration when hot. acts like its flooding and stalling. idles ok when put in neutral but once in drive, it tries to stall. on intitial start up it's fine, but within 10 minutes...


The fuel injection has an engine temperature sensor that is supposed to make the mixture very rich when cold, but then leaner as it warms up. If the thermal resistor is burned out, then it will have too much resistance all the time, and the engine will be flooded out. Use an ohmmeter to measure the temperature sensor resistance. I don't remember the exact values, but bad ones often times go 0 or infinite. And you should see it vary with temperature.
