It's your upper intake manifold gasket. it has a crack in it and needs to be replaced. your getting to much air and not enough gas. mine did the same thing.

So what you saying is it's hard to start cold right? Something in computer system not allowing excess fuel to injectors when cold. Probably sensor Get auto electrician to sort it out otherwise you end up replacing things that there is nothing wrong with They got the right gear

this happened to us when we got a new key and had it programmed with the car. anytime we locked the doors and opened them with the key instead of the remote, the alarm would set itself off. we took out the fuse for the alarm.

you need to have your key reprogrammed. even a plain spare key will set off the alarm if it does not have a chip programmed with the same code as the anti theft system.

Two problems - hard starting, and where does the Vapor Canister Purge Valve go


Have you checked the battery?  There may be enough charge to get the car going after a few cranks, but not on the first go.  Any auto mechanic shop should be able to hook your battery up and perform a load test on it to see if it holding a charge.  Many will even do it for free.
