Having starting trouble with my 97 Sport. Just started about a 2 weeks ago. My mechanic says he has run into this before, and has yet to find a fix. If I try to cold start it, it just cranks and cranks. If I punch the throttle, it will start just fine. It seems to idle and run just fine after starting. He checked the fuel pressure and the computer for codes. Both were fine. Any ideas? I have tried good premium gas and a bottle of STP. :confused:

It might be a bad starter, happened to me before. My dad would crank the car, but pull the key back too soon, then the car wouldn't start at all until I floored it.

Also, flooring it clears the fuel outta the engine, at least in a 94 3.5L. It says that somewhere in the manual, your engine might be flooded. I'm not really sure about that though.

sounds like fuel delivery somewhere in the car. you might try taking off your TBs and cleaning them.
