So you can read about the problem I was having above. Simplar to everyone elses on this page.
I solved it. For me atleast.
I was running a K&N air filter. I took it out and put a paper one in. Seemed to solve every thing. The filter only cost $4, it was worth a try.
Some ideas I have to why this could have solved it:
1) K&N was alowing too much air in during start up. Air/fuel mix was too lean.
2)it would start during cold starts because the K&N oil was cool and "hard", when I tried a hot start, the oil had warmed up and was being sucked into the engine (either fumes or liquid oil).
3) I over oiled, same as #2 but the warm oil expanded and wouldn't let as much air through when it needed it, air/ fuel mix was to rich.
Or maybe those are all wrong. But i've solved my problem. Hope this helps you solve yours.
