Could be the fuel filter or fuel pressure regulator.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

In the morning, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and listen to hear if the electric fuel pump is running. It should run briefly and stop. If it does, it will not repeat. If it does not run, you could try turning the key off and on several times to see if it will start running. If it is defective, it needs to be replaced. Its a nasty job, requiring that the fuel tank be dropped.
