Hi there, well you should probably try to pinpont the problem, Iam not a real pro, but i would by a can of QUIK START, AND just take the hose from yr air filter wher it connects to yr throutle body, and just quikly spray rite in the few times, rite put the hose back and go try to start the car, depending on yr outcome, you can than make a solid desision if it your electrical side or the fuel management, you know what oi mean, i recvon it will start stride away after you spray it, andand if yes than it could be yr fuel pump, or a leak somwher in the system and it loosing presia, but anyway 1st thing is 1st rite.. lol.. G/ luck, hope it helpes you. Tony
