Hard Start and Idle until warm '91 G20 #726298

Hi,

First post on the forum here, so I don't know whether this has been answered before and I just can't seem to find it. That being said, I just picked up a '91 305 tbi G20 a couple weeks ago and I drove it home about 40 mins and to work the next couple days and it runs great once it's warm but has a really tough time starting and I need to feather the gas for aprox. 3-5 mins until it will idle by itself and is ready to drive.

Now, it's a little worse than when I got it but still got it to fire up today. I've done some research and I'm thinking it might be a bad fuel pump or the lines as starter fluid really helps it fire. I don't really want to replace the fuel pump and have it not be the main problem, so any suggestions on what else it could be or just general advice on what I should do?

Also, I checked the error codes and don't seem to have any, and all the spark plugs are new and the wires look good.

Cheers

Welcome to the site ....

If it is a fuel problem there is a fuel filter on the passenger wall by the gas tank, check may be a cheep fix.

Again welcome ...

Thanks, I'll keep you posted and check the fuel filter (changing if necessary).

Check throttle body gasket for a leak and the idle control valve may need cleaned.
