Default warm start - no power

my 95ti has developed a problem when restarted when the engine is still warm. The idle is erratic and the engine will not rev or develop power. The throttle has to be held wide open and then it will eventually rev up and run fine. It usually takes about 10-20 seconds.

blowin 4 just had the same problem. I think he said it was the sender that tells the DME the temp of the engine. PM him and he will tell you exactly what it was
