Default Problem with cold start Floods out, won't start

97 Chrysler Cirrus 2.5L V6 LX, 130,000 miles. Transmission replaced 2 yrs ago. One Owner.
Problem with cold start, barely starts and sputters, but will not stay started. Floods out and gases out the plugs. Can anyone give helpful advice, or faced same issue and what might be the problem? Was running fine 2 months ago, but then suddenly wouldn’t start one morning. First issue: Not firing. Neighbor mechanic replaced distributor, cap, rotor, and spark plugs. Then car started flooding and still wouldn’t start. So then replaced crank sensor, map sensor, and temp sensor. Fuel pressure then read 49 psi (normal). Code also determined O2 sensor, so replaced that as well. Ran fine for a couple of days, then started flooding and gassing out plugs again. Carried car down to local Dodge dealer for diagnostic. No codes were thrown, checked timing and all OK. Replaced spark plugs again to Champion as recommended by dealer instead of Autolite. Still didn’t fix problem. Can anyone HELP!

Don't know if this will help. My cirrus ran rough and ended being the fuel injectors. They were clogged. The fuel filter was not doing it job 100% and the injectors had a "sand" look in the end that connects to the fuel rail. All I did is unhook it, clean them out along with the fuel rail, and all is been fine since. Hope this helps somewhat.
