If you are questioning fuel pressure drop-off, try this:
1) Turn the key from off to run (engine off) and count to 5.
2) Turn the key off and repeat step 1 a total of 5 times.
3) On the 6th time, see if it starts normally.
If there is no change, the next question I have is if the check engine light stays on when the engine is running.
If cycling the key does nothing, let's try the throttle closed and air volume learning procedures. I attached directions below. The first pic is specific to the throttle valve closed procedure. Do this one first. The remaining pics are specific to the air volume learning procedures.
Both of the procedures below don't require a scan tool. If you have one that can communicate and actuate the throttle body/PCM, let me know.
Let me know what you find. Also, let me know if you have retrieved any diagnostic trouble codes.
See pics below.
