Car cranks for a long time with no start. I turn the key off and crank some more and no start. I finally get a start on the third try. Next time I want to start the car I turn it on, then off, then on, then off, then on and then I try to crank it over and it starts right up. This tells me it is not getting enough fuel when it only gets one pulse to the injectors. It needs three pulses (key on, key off) to start. Does this mean the injectors are partially clogged? I should mention the car runs great once it starts. I have 50 psi at the fuel port (gauge attached) so fuel pressure is not a problem and it does not leak down. If it is the initial pulse not providing enough fuel, how do I fix this? Currently, I put Seafoam in a quarter tank of fuel. That has not made a difference yet. What do you think?
