    If you have a fuel leak at the pressure side of the fuel rail, fuel pressure will bleed off and make the engine had to initially start until the fuel pump can restore adequate fuel pressure, look around the fuel filter (engine compartment under the air filter housing low down toward the rear, fuel injectors , and around the fuel rail for leaks.
