Hello , Drove my Ex back home over the weekend (150+ miles)
started and ran great the whole way . Stopped first time . had a hell of a time getting it restarted every time we shut it off . Was so thankful we
made it back home .Its sitting in the garage now .
It acts like its either not getting spark or fuel . once its started it runs great.
I m going to change the fuel regulator . First . Any advice .
Changed the battery , Battery cables . Checked fuel pressure .( Ok)
:feedback: .
Thanks Joey

does it start any easier if you cycle the key a few times before trying to start it?

Some times it will start right up by cycling the key 2,3 times . The fuel pressure just by turning the key on is 34 psi .after starting it drops to about 26 psi . Half throttle is about 60 ,63 psi . Like I said once its started it runs great . I am lost here .
