    You know i'm kinda the same way in the mornings! The best thing to do is leave it with a mechanic overnight so it can be scanned and tested before and during cold start up. Saves a lot of guesswork!

    Try to cycle your key a couple of times before you try to start the car. Turn to run then off 2 or 3 times. If it starts more quickly or normal, see about replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter.
