Question
After a winter layover, the car will fire with the choke full out but then it will immediately die. Fuel pump works fine

Answer
Check to see if you have a fuel problem or and ignition problem by putting some fuel in the throttle body.
Check all relays and make sure you have a spark at the plugs. If it starts with the fuel injected, you have a fuel problem. If it does not you have an ignition problem.
