It may be that they are gummed up and not providing enough fuel to the engine on snappy accleration (stall) - then releasing pressurized fuel from the rail (lines as late as 88?) into the engine after stall (flood). How has fuel economy been generally? It could also be one of a hundred other things related to vacuum, electrical or cold start system - but I'd eliminate above first and move on from there. Best of luck. -- Dexter J's fab NG900 is for sale:
