Default Extra air needed to start when warm

Anyone have any ideas what would cause a sidekick engine to need a little extra air (slight press down on throttle pedal - not WOT) to get it started once the engine is warmed up? It starts just fine when cold. Idles just fine too. No fault codes. Don't know if this is normal or not. It's a 16v out of a 95 kick installed in a Sammy.

Thanks

Your throttle position sensor is probably out of adjustment and depressing the throttle shifts the position.

You're a smart dude! The calibration is off. Verified using the procedures on Fixkick's site. Appreciate the tip. Saved me gobs of time and headaches.
