If service engine light is on, have the codes read Autozone will read them for free, post all code here. Next, if no service engine light, there are a few parts that can cause hard starting, they include, fuel pump(low pressure) Idle air control(Bypass not working) Engine coolant temp sensor(choke system). And EGR(stuck partially open). And the biggest cause, worn spark plugs and bad plug wires. Remove plugs, and check condition and GAP! Also clogged fuel filter, less likley since it runs OK when you do get it going.
