Difficulty starting. My rodeo starts but shuts down if left for over
12 hours. It sputters and dies if I don't press on the gas. It starts fine afterwards until another 12 hours. I already changed filters and fuel pump and injectors are fine

Did you test the fuel pressure? There could be a pressure leak in the system and quite often the leak is intank, the connections between fuel pump and housing.

Try cycling the ignition switch a few times and retest. Check for trouble codes and monitor the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.
