You need to check the fuel system from the injectors to the fuel pump. You may have a rusted and leaking fuel filter but it is most probably the pressure regulator in the fuel tank. Do NOT try to repair a fuel tank problem unless you are familiar with all the safety precautions.
I had the same problem with a 96 sport, the motor blew up last week so problem solved, lol..I just got a 93, not much difference.
Hope this helps you !

2011 Fusion sat 5 days, now wont start

first make sure your battery connections are clean and tight, try moving the wires, if they move tighten them and check for corrosion. if its an electronic key start your fob could be bad. if neither of those issues are the culprit you may have a starter issue. try tapping the starter ( not too hard) with a hammer and then see if it starts. if this works replace your starter, about $250. if your car starts and before you spend money bring your car to any auto parts store and have them do a free battery check.

2001 8.1L Starts ok and runs ok, then it may be hard to start till it back fires then starts right up. May die when costing, then hard to restart.

I would get a multimeter on the crank sensor and check the wave pattern I believe there is a issue with timing or the crank sensor.

1999 silverado is hard to start when engine is warm, and idles rough for a couple of seconds after starting

You may have a leaky fuel pressure regulator located on the LH side of the engine on the side of the fuel rail. The internal diaphram can leak fuel which then gets into the vacuum line attached to the regulator. From there the leaking fuel travels through the line and gets into the intake manifold causing the motor to be slightly flooded when you restart it. The regulator is round, about 1-1/2" diameter, and about that long and has a small 1/8" vacuum line attached to it. After the engine has been off for a few minutes if you remove the vacuum line from the regulator and find even a trace of fuel in the line then you've found your problem. Typical symptoms for a leaky regulator are: Starts fine cold and will restart fine warm if the engine has only been off for a minute or so. Restarts hard warm if the vehicle has sat for several minutes or up to an hour. May produce a bit of black smoke during the warm/hard start.

Hard starting. cranks several times before starting. runs fine.

Sounds like low fuel pressure or a stopped up fuel filter. If the vehical has two tanks does it act the same on both tanks? there are fuel pumps in both tanks and one one on the frame. if the one on the frame is slow or not working the tank pumps can still run the car sometimes but it has troble getting started
