After the hard starts the service engine soon light has come on twice but haven't had time to get possible codes checked and I have a potential buyer for the car.

    Thanks. and good call! A mechanic verified early pressure drop after short crank but for some reason also suspects a pinched/burned wire, no time to work on it until next week. Will report outcome.
