How many miles? And does the engine run OK after it starts?

120,000 and it runs fine after it starts. Pumping the gas a couple of times while the car is turning over seems to help.

Thanks,

Sounds like a fuel pressure leak down something in that area. Also could be oil leaking into the cyl from worn valve guides.
