    no check engine light, runs perfectly fine after starting, it kinda tricks me thinking its fixing to start the first time i try. cranks like normal. dad might just need a new fuel filter. but he just likes making me suffer with things like this since he isnt happy till i know how to do and change everything. but idk

    It could just be your starter. I would think if it was fuel related that it would persist even after you start the car.

    It might still persist..but he might not notice it etc...easiest thing to do is check fuel pressure at the rail imho
