Engine Runs Rough in Morning and when Engine Cold

undefined

1988 Camaro, 305, Vin E, Throttle Body Injection.

When the morning coolness comes, my car is running very rough at startup. After it warms up, it's Ok and run's smoothly. I live in Hawaii, so we're talking temps in the mid 60's. I did add some dry gas, and it may have helped but i need to see tomorrow.

Tune up including plugs, wires, oil and filter was recently accomplished.

Thanks!

You could be having a choke problem. Get the throttle body cleaned and see if that helps. Then we can go from there.
Hope this helps ya,

Thanks. I did the throttle body not too long ago.

What I did do though was to put some dry gas in the tank. I think I got some water in the tank somehow because ever since adding that, It runs smooth at startup, even in the morning coolness. I would assume that since this is the case that the choke is OK. Thanks for your help!
