Question 97 LeSabre hard start when hot

3.8L if the car sits for 1hr it starts hard and acts like it is flooded. It starts ok when it sets over night or any other shorter time.

Pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator. then smell it. I'll bet you smell gas. If so, the FPR is bad and needs to be replaced.
