any combination of things. Start with the basics, how are the fluids and filters, any strange noises? battery voltage and fuel pressure good? Any lights lit up on the dash? Any maintenance done on the car recently?

I just replaced the filter 3 weeks ago and there's no strange noise. battery voltage is 100% but don't know of the fuel pressure of the car cause the car drives very smooth and perfect after replacing the air mass sensor that was faulty and makes the car run very poor and that was like 2 weeks ago. But the only problem am having now is the hard start every morning. I think i need to go for fuel pressure texting to see if it is the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump...
