Normally I'd test the coolant temperature sensor.
It's responsible for "putting on the choke" as it were.

If I recall it's into the thermostat housing.
But my suggestion is to test it.
Simple diagnostics live data will read what temperature the ECU is "seeing".
I don't replace parts on a guess.

might be losing a bit of compression...these are prone to sticky lifters...once the oil has circulated a bit no more issues
