85 380SE: what would symptoms of bad fuel accumulator be?

Can anyone tell me what the symptoms of a bad fuel accumulator would be?

My car takes 3-5 seconds of cranking before it fires, then runs a little rough as if a cylinder or two is not firing yet,...for another 5-10 seconds. Then idles normally.

does seem to take maybe a second or two longer when hot,.....but not much different than cold starts which take 5 seconds on average.
