Engine Performance problem
1998 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 112500 miles

My engine runs fine. It will not start unless I remove the throttle block air box, open the butterfly flapper and spray starter fluid into the throttle block. It will then start. The vehicle is new to me and seems to start ok if the engine is at normal temperature. The previous owner s tells me it has started hard since it was new.
