STARTING PROBLEM

1999 Toyota Sienna • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 180,000 miles

I have 99 toyota sienna, Lately in the morning or when the car sits for along time and is cold I have to try few times before the care starts, When I crank the engine it wants to start and I sense the starter but the engine hesitates and turns off. I have to start again or give it gas to start. I checked the throttle cable and looks fine not loose. What could be casuing this hesitation. Also this happens after work since the car sits in the pasking lot for 8, 9 hrs. But once it warms up it strat with one crank.
