A faulty Intake air temperature sensor can cause that. If it's faulty and supplying computer with a signal that says it's freezing cold, when its not, then it would cause it to dump excessive fuel, when it isn't necessary. Might be smart & cheaper, to run it in and have it scanned for codes, at an auto parts place, or trusted mechanic. With all these sensors that can cause similar symptoms, why gamble, have it scanned & know for sure.
