Hi Alex and thanks for using 2CarPros.
Honestly, it sounds like a fuel pressure issue. If the pump is weak, the regulator isn't working correctly, or there is pressure drop off, it takes longer for it to start and to recover
Low fuel pressure can be a pump issue or even a plugged fuel filter. If you haven't replaced the filter in a long time, you may want to consider that.
Here are directions for filter replacement specific to your vehicle:
REPLACING FUEL FILTER
See picture 1
- Remove protective cover by removing mounting bolts (arrows).
See picture 2
- Disconnect fuel line and fuel hose.
- Loosen mounting screws (arrow) pivot holder down and remove filter.
- Install new fuel filter and plastic sleeve in flow direction.
- Sleeve should project on both sides of the holder since contact corrosion may occur if there is direct contact with the holder.
- Replace plastic sleeve, if necessary.
- Reinstall protective cover.
Also, I would recommend checking fuel pressure. Here is a link that shows in general how that is done:
One last thing. Try this to see if it makes a difference.
1) turn the key to the run position engine off and count to 3
2) turn the key off and repeat the sequence a total of 3 times
3) Try to start the vehicle.
If it starts right off, then you have a pressure issue.
Let me know if you have other questions or need help.
