Check all of your fuel lines that go to the fuel rail for leaks or cracked hoses.Be sure that the pressure regulator and pulsation damper isn't leaking.Also be sure none of the throttle body components aren't leaking.As far as the sound without knowing what the sound is like I don't want to mislead you only because sound travels it would be hard to pinpoint the sound without being there to hear it.Also inspect the injectors for any leakage.

Why does the engine of my 1998 Chevy Cavalier z24 start rough when cold?

It sounds like your fuel filter is clogged, or the fuel pump is failing. I would change the filter first and see if that does it.

Runs ******

if it smells like raw, unburned fuel, you may have an injector stuck open. i assume it clears up and drive good after a short warm up. there will be evidence of which cylinder has the bad injector by pulling out the spark plugs. the affected cylinder will be washed clean and smell like unburned fuel. the plug may also be "wet black" and of course smell like raw fuel.

2002 landrover freelander will not start but when does runs good

I have the same problem with mine (a td4). It is the fuel pump.
Put the ignition key on the position before it makes the engine start, with the dashboard lights on, and with the motor compartment open, try to listen the fuel pump working (it is a cylinder on the right side under the electronic dark boxes). If you don't listen anything, try to knock it with your fingers. In my case it starts to work again and with attention we can listen some noise (tsssssssss). when I hear that noise, I just come back to my seat and start the motor.
I don't know if the fuel pump can be repaired.
Hope it can help anyone...

New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.

Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.
