I have a 1996 Cadillac Deville with 115K miles. When I start the car sometimes it turns over but does not start. I have to give it gas to get it going. Once the car is started I do not have any problems. I have never changed the fuel filter, and figured this is where I would start. Do you guys agree, or is there something else you would recommend?
Do you

I replaced the spark plugs at 90K with factory default delcos. The engine runs fine once its started. I understand its fuel injected, but it definetly gets gas when I push the pedal while turning it over. When I try to start it is turning over, but the rpms are below the normal 600-650. If I give quick small press on the pedal it starts, and then idles 600-650. Could the fuel injector just be clogged? I would think either fuel injector, filter, cadillic converter, or fuel pump would all have issue once engine is running not just at start. However something is definetly causing this.
