Fuel pump may be going. try this. turn key on, listen for fuel pump to run for 5 seconds. Turn key off, wait 15 seconds or until you hear relay click inside car. Turn key on again for 5 seconds and ff for 15 seconds. repeat once more. This will pressurize fuel system to 40 psi so injectors have full pressure. If it starts quickly now, you are getting bleed down through the check valve in the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail.

Best time to change a fuel filter?

fuel filter replacement period is in the owners manual and depends on fuel quality and driving conditions
if you get water in the fuel , it should be change immediately, even if it was just done
dirty/dusty conditions , change it more often
around now would be a good time to change it and then under normal conditions again at 100.000 miles

Hard to shift into first gear

Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

1999 Buick Park Avenue will **** 4 to 5 times from a dead stop

You need to perform a fuel pressure check, since it is OBII if there was something electrical going on; you would be seeing a service engine light.
