86 Tempo - Floods and stalls after warming up.

I have an 86 Tempo GL with a 2.3 and auto and I have a problem I really need to cure. Other than it's little bugs, it's a good car, except for the flooding and stalling.

What happens is when I can get it to start, it will run for about 5-15 minutes fine and strong. Then after it warms up or the idle kicks down, the injector starts pouring fuel and floods the car. Then I have to wait about an hour or so then it'll start and run again. . . sometimes. When it floods it will stay running at very low RMP with it floored and will sometimes come back. But it usually just dies.

I checked the codes and all I got was a 31 and 67. 67 is unimportant right now since it's intermitant. And 31 is an EGR code, in a nutshell. I disconnected the harness to the EGR, and it seemed to run a little longer, but then it went back to flooding.

I'm hoping someone can inform me as to how I can fix the problem, at least long enough to sell it, or tell the guy that's looking at it what needs to be fixed.
