check this---turn the key on but don't start the car, listen for the fuel pump to stop, then off then on and wait again, now try to start it, if it starts normal you have a dirty filter,bad pump,or a check valve isn't working.If it doesn't you could have leaking injectors loading up the cylinders and it takes a few seconds to clear.If this the case run your tank down to 1/2 add a full can of SEA FOAM,(parts store about $4.00).or have it cleaned professionally@ $89.00
