Try this next time you get gas.
1. Turn the key to the On position and wait for the Check engine light to turn OFF.
2. Then try starting your engine.
Sometimes priming the system makes it easier to start up.
You need to hook up a test fuel pressure gauge (on the side of the fuel rail) and see what kind of fuel pressure your getting at idle.
Maybe its a bad gas cap or something stupid.
+1 for this idea. you might even want to turn the key to on twice, before
starting the engine.
Definately check the easy stuff first, but it could be your fuel pump is just getting weak and old. Never hurts to change the fuel filter either.
That is very possible, just go to autzone and have them pull the code for you. bad gas caps make people throw a CEL all the time.
Let us know what you find out.
