With little infomation i would say that you need to replace the fuel pump or you shoul start with the fuel filter then if that doesnt help try the fuel pump replacement . see when you push it motor is turning faster than starter motor meaning need less fuel to start it so when you push it motor is winding faster than with starter motor good luck with this project

    ive been reading up on tour issue and there is a test that you can do to see what sensor is not working you need to have a real good knowledge of how to use a jumper wire and you have to ground out the sti circuit and watch your check engine light count the flashes it will be a 2 digit code that i need to determine problem so say 2 pulses of flashes represents code 02 which means camshaft sensor failure 4 flashes means crankshaft position sensor . so at that ill leave that up to you if ur willing to use jumper could cause damage if you ground the wrong pin so ill want to know if you know the fuel pressure that your pump is making it should be atleast 40 psi thats alot of pressure if you dont have the correct pressure it wont run for ya lets find out what the pressure is before grounding out any wires for codes do a fuel pressure test the gauge kit is 30.00 if you dont have one or if yoe have a neighbour that does ill wait to hear from you re actual fuel pressure in psi this will let me in on weather its a crank sensor or the fuel pump ok try

1995 Buick LeSabre 3.8 Liter Wont start unless I push down on gas pedal like it wants more gas, Why? Runs OK when running

Possibly a bad or dirty Idle Air Control motor. The engine computer controls the operation of this motor to control idle speed. A pintle on the motor extends and retracts, according to signal from the computer. The pintle controls an air passage below it to give or take away air during idle -when the throttle shaft is closed, no air will get into the engine through the throttle body except through the idle air passage . The IAC motor or valve is on the throttle body, with a 4 wire connector. Take it off and look for carbon or coking deposits around the valve's pintle, and in the air passage beneath it. With the idle valve off, plug the connector back on it, then watch the pintle as the key is turned to on. If there is no movement whatsoever, the motor is probably bad.

I have also heard that a bad coolant temperature sensor can cause such a hard start. If the computer does not know the engine is cold, it won't put enough gas into the cylinders for easy starts. The engine needs more gas to start and run when cold.

Could be a dirty throttle body, or a stuck idle air control valve.

You in the ball park. I would also check the idle control valve. Also, if you have not done so, check and/or change your fuel filter. GL.
