Question about Mitsubishi Lancer
That is probably because of a too rich mixture on start. I don't think that cylinders are flooded overnight, that would be unusual.
To ensure you can remove spark plugs overnight, and put them back on start in the morning. If the problem is righ mixture, then the problem will restart as usually. If problem was flooding because of a leak (valve, butterfly), then after drying up the engine will start immediately.
Rich mixture can be caused by incorrect MAF or AIT sensors causing wrong choke settings, by wrong spark plugs cable order, distribution problems, valve problems, choke butterfly problem, or by a bad PCM. Sometimes scanning the car for OBD codes can tell you something on the problem
