as the title states, try to start the car, it will hit and act like it is going to start and then nothing. push pedal to the floor, and it will start, and run pig rich, I mean like .67 lambda rich. seems to be a real weak spark coming from the coil, it is yellowish orangish.

new pip and coil, tfi tests good.

40psi fuel pressure on prime and crank. when running there is 35psi with the fpr vacuum hose hooked up, 40-42psi with it unplugged.

tps is good. I can data log and watch the tps volts, and there are no dead spots in the full range of the tps.


tried all I know to look at. any thoughts from you guys?

Starting with the throttle fully open shuts off the injectors. Called "flood clear mode". Seems like something is happening that is causing the engine to flood. Cleaned the MAF sensor recently? Is the problem the same starting cold and hot? Pulled any DTCs? You want to see what the ECU is logging as well.

This.

Agree on a stuck injector or something, tried starting it without the maf plugged in?
