The engine floods itself . my mechanic said its most likely the Cold Start Injector or the Cold Start Injector Switch. Im getting them because ive heard of them going bad and its probably not a bad thing to replace after almost 128k miles. could this cure my problem? How hard is it to replace the injector and switch? does anyone have pics of the injector and switch. preferably in the car.

Very unlikely that the cold start injector. yes a leak test would tell for sure. As Rainman said if you unplug the switch so it doesn't work and it's not leaking, then it cannot be the injector. Personally, from experience I would throughtly clean the throttle body and IAC with spray TB cleaner and see what effect this has on your prob. The next thing to make sure of is full and constant vacuumn to the MAP sensor. This is the major component that the ecm uses to judge fuel requirements. Good luck.
