    Rough Start

    Okay i dont know if its the starter but..this happened on my 98 formula as well after a tune up..the plugs all thats good..although i regret buying bosch plugs for this car..okay the problem is the car wont almost ever turn on..during first try. I pump the gas and it helps but still have to do it twice all the time..once started it runs fine. Never "Doesnt" start. I was thinking it was the plugs or something..we gapped em right supposedly..and has new wires..everything else is fine..and it didnt do this during the first week i bought the car and tuned it up..so i know its something i did..i just dont want it to damage my engine somehow. No codes being thrown..no other issue of any kind. And random question..could oil cause this? Thanks in advance..

    Like Cammed said, fuel pressure would be the first thing to look at. Has the filter been replaced recently? How about a vacuum leak, like the PCV hose on the side of the throttle body. That could be leaning you out and making start up difficult.

    I havent checked the fuel pressure or anything yet. But i replaced the fuel filter 3 months ago. And no codes being thrown..and my mechanic fixed my previous vacuum leak. And went over all the hoses said everything was cool. But i can try and check it
