Hard to start

My car will start in a couple of tries when cold, but after it warms up and sits for about 5 minutes it takes about 5 or 6 tries. I don't dare give it any gas because it seem to flood and makes it even harder to start. If I cut it off and start it immediately its starts fine. The car runs fine otherwise. I put new plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and pulled fuel relay out and inspected it for any broken solder joints but it looked fine. The car has about 160,000 miles on it and when I first got it it would cut off slowing down sometimes, but this hasn't happened in a while. What could be the problem?----OVP?---need new injectors?-Rotor button---any ideas?
