If it starts right up if it's only been sitting a few minutes but takes a long time to start if it's been sitting several hours, it's a leaky anti-drainback valve that is located inside the pressure regulator that sits on top of the fuel pump inside the gas tank. You can get to it from the top of the gas tank but you have to drop the tank. When that valve leaks, it allows all the gasoline that is supposed to stay put inside the fuel rail next to the fuel injectors to drain all the way back down to the fuel tank. The delay in starting is how long it takes for the gas to make its way back up to the fuel injectors from the fuel tank.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thank you for your input sounds perfectly logycal I am going to drop the gas tank I hope I can buy the pressure regulator without having to buy the whole fuel pump.

right on jerry, the last time this came up i argued with everyone, and they wouldn't believe me. go with it.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
