I had more or less the same problem. It would only happen when the engine was cold. According to the mechanic, the fuel pump was going bad. After replacing it, I havent had it happen to me again, granted its only been a couple of days since I changed it.

I have a potential solution, but only if you give good thumbs up though:)
It's the fuel pump relay, located behind the ashtray.
It's the one on the right, of the two.
If you gently twist it l/r, while turning the motor over.

To start with, make sure the belt is in good shape. Now would be an easy time to replace it. To remove the alternator, losen the swivel bolt on the top, then turn the long screw out to release belt tension (it is a 10 mm, the swivel bolt is 13mm, with a same sized nut). With the belt off, remove the supply power line (you disconnected the battery, right?), the smaller charge power line, and then remove the case to ground line. after that, remove the underside mount bolt, and the alternator should drop right out. Very easy job to do, maybe one hour.

your injectors arnt opening make sure that your white relay is good check grounds clean off the battery post. whats happening is your cold start injector is spraying a little fuel in to get it going and it is running off of that.
