Maybe a malfunctioning cold start injector, if your vehicle is so equipped. Also, later model fuel injected vehicles need adequate fuel pressure to start and run correctly. Try this. Turn the key to the on position (but do not start). Wait 2-3 seconds, then turn off. Repeat this 4-5 times then try starting. If the engine fires right off or starts quicker, the fuel system is probably losing pressure. Troubleshoot for a bad regulator or leaking injectors.
