Hi Becky. Thanks for contacting us today. In most cases, a hard to start problem like this is fuel system related, possibly a damaged mass air flow sensor, fuel pump or dirty fuel / air filters or fuel injectors. Since there are so many possible sources of this issue, it’s probably best to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an onsite inspection.
