My take on that if you have to hold your gas pedal to the floor to start it would be a bad coolant temp sensor real common on that car to go bad. Also inspect the connector to it it's corroded then you will have to replace the connector too. The sensor's are only 10 and there screwed into the head right below where the upper radiator hose goes on. When the sensor goes bad they read colder then actual engine temp and cause the engine too flood. When you hold the gas pedal all the way to the floor it goes into clear flood mode shutting off the fuel going into the engine and allows it start.
