1996 SL320 flooding

Hello, just purchased a 1996 SL320 last Saturday put approximately 400mi on it
drove it Thursday morning no problems let it sit for several hours then when starting it the engine floods with gas but will crank eventually. Same thing today
cranks fine as long as the engine is warm. I haven't touched the accelerator at all
when cranking. Any ideas what might cause this ?

Thanks, Doug
