If it were running that rich, you should be fouling the plugs. Take a look-see at them for carbon deposits. The plugs should have a nice-tan color to the ceramic insulator around the center electrode.

It sounds like a classic case of vapor lock. Have any alterations been made that would move heat close to the fuel lines? Or, do you possibly have a dirty fuel filter?

Also, could check additional details in THIS LINK.

Hope helps.

I have a 1990 ford 4.9 straight 6 that floods out when cold.


Could be the "heat riser" isn't working properly. Also check the choke on the carb. Both are there to help with cold running. If it's injected, not carburetor, check temp sensor.

Due to the age of your jeep, You need to replace the fuel pump and filter along with replacing the water pump and thermostat as well as coolant temp sensor. Fuel supply and coolant flow and temp sensing is critical to Cold start (open loop) and warm up (closed loop) Idle function and fuel mapping. Change the air filter too.

Car Surges then dies at a stop only in hot or warm weather


Think about what you just said. Only does this in times of higher temps out BUT never in winters cold. Doesn't that seem strange to you. Well I guess it does, huh. Anyway, know these systems helps. When engine is started, the temp sensor tells the computer it needs to place the engine to cold start mode. It does this and extra fuel is put into the cylinders to keep it running like a choke on the carbureted engines. But those you can turn the choke off or it does this automatically from the warmer engine. If in fact the temp sensor is not telling the computer it's warm enough to be taken out of cold start mode, it keeps dumping excessive fuel into the cylinders an flooding the engine causing it to surge and then die, because it's flooded. Therefore, the temperature sensor is faulty and needs replaced. Do that and drive on.

It could be a combination of 2 things. A faulty MAP sensor itself or a bad TPS (throttle position sensor). It's not uncommon for a bad TPS to idle when the motor is cold but once warm, not idle fast enough to keep the vehicle running.

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.
