These can be hard to start quite often because the fuel pump fails to produce enough pressure at first. At 54psi they don't start, but at 55psi they do. You need an accurate fuel pressure gage to check that. Otherwise you need to apply the normal routine of checking the basics, spark, fuel pressure and injector pulse, and have a scan tool to check for codes, and critical data. (ECT, CKP, CMP,)
