When was the last time the fuel filter was changed? Is there an engine light on, if so have a scan done.

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is leaking

The regulator is under the upper intake. It leaks into the cylinders. You typically don't smell it on these engines. It also gives the exactly the same symptoms because it floods the engine and takes forever to start.
