The car starts find when cold. Once warm it floods when you want to start it, you have to then put your foot flat and crank if for 5-10 seconds.
no engine light is not on. The radiator fan is also constantly on, tempreture gauge on the dash is working and seems to be within normal operation tempreture limits. The engine runs fine but idles a little high at 1000rpm. Any ideas where to start looking?

Start with basics. Check spark plugs, note the characterictics of the electrodes, black, white or brown.
Check fuel pressure.
Idling speed of 100 is too high for idlig, check the IAC.
