I also have the same problem - not yet repaired, but work-around is "turn key on 5 sec off then repeat 3 times --- this will pressurize fuel rail --- then crank engine ---- works for me.
Suspect cause is either small leak or insufficient time cycle when ignition is first turned on.

92 lumina not starting

Possibly a fuel regulator or injectors? it seems that there is insufficient fuel going into the combustion chamber. Take the fuel line off at the fuel rail and stick your finger over the hose, now get a friend to initiate the fuel pump by turning the key to on for a split second, if you cant stop fuel from ******* out from where you have your finger you know that the pressure is ok up to the fuel rail, put the fuel line back on then move onto your pressure regulator etc.

I am having a problem with my car starting. It mainly happens when in the garage and when its been sitting overnight. It seems to good battery.It ALWAYS does start, but only after trying it 3-4 times after...

if still under warranty have dealer perform fuel rail residual pressure test.probably defect w/pressure regulator /check valve in fuel tank.fuel rail does not hold residual pressure so when you start after sitting for extended periods it takes time for pressure to build up and vehicle to start.

I am having problems starting my 1998 pontiac grand am gt 2.43L

check for fuel pressure. there should be a cap on top of yur fuel rail beside your intake. check your psi. if its low then chances are you need a new fuel pump or fuel filter.

Having problems with it starting changed spark plugs even changed the computer but nothin it likes wants to but doesnt even replaced the oxygen sensor please help

Try some starter fluid in the intake manifold. If it fires you have a fuel issue. Either a pressure regulator on the fuel rail, a bad fuel pump in the gas tank, or even a plugged fuel filter.

Having problems starting takes awhile to start just turns over for about 15 to 30 seconds before it starts

i would try replacing the fuel filter, first. then testing fuel pressure at rail and fuel pressure regulator. just to get started. good luck.

2002 Saturn SL - Periodic problem with it starting.

Sounds like the idle air control valve. Fuel filter, plugs and wires, could also be the fuel injectors. Take it to Auto Zone they will diagnoses it for free. .

Starting problems

i would make sure the fuel filter the little arrow is pointing toward the front of the car and make sure the injectors are ok and not plug and check the safety switch for the gas shut off to make sure it not sticking.

Problems with starting

Coupla things:
1) I guesssed hot start - I think the system is dealing with gas volatility and trying to ensure that a minimum of unburnt fuel is released into the cat - in the long run, that is good for the air and your car. 2) Here is a tip which really is a tip for everyone for every start. Turn the key to on, but wait a second until you hear the fuel pump cut off - that means the fuel rail is fully pressuruzed, and the car should start right up, for a cold start. It may also reduce the longer crank times during a #1.
