1994 Buick 3.8 V6.Hard to start.Acts likeit is not getting fuel Have to use starter fluid to start some

(1994 Buick Regal)
If it has been sitting for a day.It usually starts.If I drive somewhere and stop it.I usually have to spray starter fluid in the air box.I think it is some type of fuel regulator or fuel module that is going bad.Thanks.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? It is worse when it is hot.
How long have you had this problem? A couple of weeks

Best policy not to try guesswork - that typically doesn’t resolve anything.

Highly recommend a professional scan test along with fuel pressure testing so the actual failure can be discovered.

This will be a comprehensive scan test that looks at all related data - this is not a just a test for any stored trouble codes - it is much more involved.

Be prepared to leave vehicle at repair facility until the required testing can be properly completed.

Good luck!
