I don't want to complain just someone with a similar problem.. give some insight. Changed computer, o2's and redid a lot of deteriorated wires . Runs so good but in the morning after overnight shutdown It starts for a moment.. stalls then cranks forever trying to hit but floods the plugs.. An injector leaking would make one cylinder flood and I cannot imagine all 6 on this 2.5 leaking at the same time.. so something has to be triggering the injectors on time too long after cool down.. I changed also the temp sensor . Could the idle motor be shorted.. or tps.. baffled and frustrated.. Scanner only showed the o2 which I changed . Thank you for this time to VENT.. I needed it..... and your help too.. Dan
