Or, it means he replaced the coil and the car is back to starting the way it should.

Correct it is starting like it should , that said we did have one injector leaking a while back so I put all new ones in . It'* running great now , hopefully it stays that way for a while .

this car should not have insta-start, it needs to crank over 1 or twice before it fires up the injectors

I'm thinking, this is the fuel regulator leaking fuel into the vac lines, anytime you let up on the gas pedal, its sucking the fuel out of the vac line, and flooding the engine

common issue

just pull the vac line off the fuel regulator, while running, if you smell, see fuel squirting out of the regulator wait a few minutes, and just watch it, if leaking, it needs replaced
