Hard to start, have to hold down throttle, it is throttle body injection, using a lot of fuel so. I replaced the coolant sensor made no difference to make it any better had to turn the distributor about 25 mm then I put a second hand computer in it and still the same, doesn't want to take the throttle down low but once a few revs on it seems ok until you pull up idles rough and will stall sometimes but then the revs pick up and seems ok.

These have many problems with cam angle sensors and internal faults with the ecu, I would start with a scan to see if there are any fault codes.
