I do not know how you would normally first start the engine. "When you give it gas" are you referring to the choke or twisting the throttle?

I always choke mine depending on the temperature for initial start up.If it is really warm, Imay just give the throttle a couple of twists for the accelerator pump. If the engine stumbles after start up, I just keep the choke on a littlelonger.

Upon restarts and provided the engine is slightly warm, my choke is not needed.

On restarts, if you are "giving it gas" byopening the throttle, you may have a leaking needle and seat. Opening the throttle would give it more air to lean the extra fuel upon startup - flooded.

You may want to use SeaFoam, check idle speed, and check carb sync.
