on a side note, the engine did try to start once without pressing the gas ( out of about 30 times), it barely ran very weak and then just died out (super weak idle for 5 seconds).....but at the least its not seized up
Are you sure you have spark? Check for spark and you may want to take off the Idle control valve and clean it and the passages that it's connected to with spray carb cleaner. Spark, fuel, and air. It may actually be flooding, the cold start valves are notorious for leaking. Pull one of the plugs and check its condition.
