Sounds  like you have a dirty fuel filter, possibly from a bad tank of gas,
to me.  Try replacing it or at least drain it and inspect the sample for dirt
as it  is common for that to cause cold hesitation. BTW what's a "cold fart" >>

Some people have a "cold start" or "hot start" problem. Mine starts fine  
cold. And even better when hot. But a minute after it starts, (right about when  
the idle speed regulator finishes doing its thing... and it is working, I  
checked...) it starts to fart around, stumbling, losing power, backfiring. When  
I take my foot off the gas, it smooths out for a few seconds, then farts around 
 again.   Acts flooded, I guess. Two or three minutes later, it  straightens 
out, often abruptly enough to snap my head back from the  acceleration.   I 
replaced the fuel filter in December. Also the  warm up regulator and thermotime 
switch. David Teitelbaum
mentioned the  frequency switch. I checked, and I notice that I don't hear it 
buzzing in either  accessory position when I turn the key. I don't hear it 
when it's running,  either. I did hear it for about three seconds after the 
engine stalled out.  Seems to me I used to hear it when the engine was running, or 
for a few  seconds when the key was turned. If it died, would it cause this? 
David  suggested I check the fuses and lambda relay. How do I check the relay? 
I have a  fuse tester. (The lambda probe is only about 4 thousand miles old.)
