The symptoms you described lead me to believe that you have a fuel delivery-related problem. I suggest that you check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If pressure is within factory specifications, I would then do a fuel flow test to determine if there is a blockage, like a very dirty fuel filter. Refer to the factory service manual for your vehicle to determine test parameters, pressure, and flow specifications for the exact location of your fuel filter. A certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will have the tools and knowledge to perform the required tests in order to diagnose your starting issue.
