starting problem

Hey guys just wanted to pick your brain I have a problem starting my jeep (2.5) it seems like the fuel line is holding to much fuel when I start the truck ,when I drive it runs fine and I replaced the fuel regulator, map sensor and filter. Theres no engine light, just dumping alot of fuel cause you can smell it, and the only way it will start if i hold my foot down on the gas pedal then she will start and run rough for a few seconds then its fine. Does anyone know what my issue can be its been doin this for a few months thanx for any feedback.

Its probably your pressure regulator or a leaky injector. Get a rent the fuel pressure guage from your local parts place and then measure at the schrader valve on the fuel rail. Turn the Jeep off and see if the presure bleeds down.
