    Anyone else have this problem?

    This afternoon when I got in my car to go and get some lunch I turned it on and the car turned over and then died!!! So i tried it again(thinking I didn't hold the key long enough) So the car turned over and then died again!!! So I looked at all my gauges and they were all reading fine. So I tried it a third time and it started up and stayed on. Why did it do this? It has never done if before. And is it something I should be worried about?

    Maybe a clogged fuel filter.

    Maybe you didn't hold the key long enough, and the car got flooded a little. This has happened to me before. Or possibly your fuel system pressure is bleeding down, and the lines have to get "re-primed", kind of like when you change your fuel filter, it takes a couple of tries to start the car usually. The only way to know if it is that would be to install a fuel pressure guage and watch the pressures while the problem is present.

    No it won't help if that is the issue. Ususally a bad fuel pump causes fuel pressure bleedoff
