o2 sensor souldnt play any part in starting especially if the car has cooled. I would lean towards a leaky fuel pressure regulator.

Sounds like the pressure is bleeding off on your fuel pump. Time to replace the fuel pump, most likely.

Just a thought, as I replaced my fuel pump twice in one year, as well as the pressure regulator and the a few other components. Finally did some real diagnostic work and traced it to the fuel pump relay switch, which is connected to the anti-theft through the ignition. Used my spare key and the problem has not repeated since. The chip in the original key was worn out.
