Ill start with a brief history of when things went down hill.
My first long trip (about 50 miles) in this car since I have had it. I got about 45miles and the car died and the throttle wouldn't respond. after a tow and some research I found that the o2 sensor was shot and installed a new one. the car ran a lot better for about a day but it still had a starting issue. and this is where I stand now.
My problem is when I try to start the car it will turn over for about 4-8 tries with my foot on the gas then finally start. After I get it to start I have to hold the peddle for about 5 seconds then I can let off and the Idle is rough. then as soon as I shut if off (hot or cold) and try to start it again I have to go through the process all over again.
I have tryed:
unplugging the blue temp sensor (runs ok in limp mode same starting problem)
changed the o2 sensor
unplugged the idle control valve
checked spark at both plugs and at the cap and rotor all good
new air filter
new fuel filter
