Default 94 honda accord hard start?

I've asked this question already but I need to be more specific. When I try to start the car when its cold it just cranks and crank. It takes forever to start. Usually I have to spray flammable spray in the intake to make it turn on faster. once the car is on it idles real high and it stays that way even if the car is fully warmed up. Could it be the tps, or map sensor or maybe could be that the timing is to advanced/ retard. I had the timing belt replaced last month. I'm really stuck on this. I upgraded the old oem copper spark plugs to platinum and it made no difference

upper left corner, driver's side. Master something, it's a paper thin plate full of computer stuff, if it's bad, it has like honey sticky colored stuff covering it, mine cost me 85.00$ for the part, my car works perfectly now

If your ever driving and you notice your car hesitate(or slighly misfire) or lose power between 1-4k rpms, it is your TPS. A good way to check if is your TPS is to get a multi-meter and see the voltage. Start by setting up the multi-meter, then turn the car in the on position but don't start the car. At closed throttle it should be .5v and at WOT(wide open throttle) it should be at 4.5v. If either is off you found your issue.
