Hard start sometimes
'96 4.6 v8. ~50k miles. During quick stops she would 'sputter' some when trying to start, if I give it some gas, she seems to fire right up. This has been isolated to quick stops, but has happened a few times after long stops. It doesn't seem to be electrical or starter, it spins just fine, but kind of coughs. I'm thinking fuel delivery.
So my plan is to check out fuel pressure and leak down to make sure the fuel system holds pressure. Any other ideas?? Thanks.
