Low fuel pressure. You need to check the fuel pressure on the first crank and watch it as it is running. Requires a special gauge. If it were just a starting problem I would say it could be a pump relay, but not if it runs rough for 5 min. Might be a dirty filter or problem in the tank.

That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.
