Question about Cars & Trucks
It may have an issue with the fuel bleeding back to the tank..does the filter have a backbleed valve in it..when the pum p fires up there is air trapped in the feeder lines to the injectors.. gotta bleed it all out before starting..crack a line loose with the key on and look for fuel to spray out..

sounds like you are loosing the fuel prime from somewhere ? Not sure if you have a lift pump on the side of the engine on that model or not? follow the fuel rails from the tank pump up, and see if it runs into a lift pump or straight to the injector pump. I would guess that you are loosing your prime, so check the line and see if you if they are wet cracked or bent. also when you changed the fuel filter did you happen to notice if the o-ring came off with the last filter or not? You may just have doubled your gasket on the filter. Sometimes they stick on the filter housing and become unnoticed.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "i think its a pump issue /but its a 07 old body style(no lift pump)had 04 that i unplugged pump on frame /it still ran from front tank/2 pumps???"
Has anyone checked the starter? Is the motor spinning over when its "not starting",as you say? If not,Then you need to do a battery/starter/alternator check and make sure they are all functioning properly to begin with. It burns me up when mechanics just "throw parts" at a car because they have no idea,or dont take the time to figure out whats REALLY wrong with it.
