Need to check the fuel pressure and for spark when engine will not start.

Yes. There is both @ startup. And still nothing until I prime with a little gas. I am sure the injectors are not priming the cyclders prior to starting. I rented a fuel pressure tool and all is fine. In specs. And like I said once it starts you can drive all day ,no problems. New plugs. New cap,button,wires,fuel filter. Also it has 96,000 orig miles. I need help

Sounds like you have dirty fuel injectors add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and clean throttle body with throttle body cleaner spray. Also check air filter.
