You unplug the coil wire and then it starts? Or just hold it up to keep it from touching other components?

Sorry I misread your year, have you had the codes pulled? There could be some in memory that will help with diagnosis, it still sounds like a rich fuel condition, will it blow any black smoke out of the tailpipe just after initial start up?
