Default Weird start ad stumble sometimes

Hello cruisers, my baby seems to be getting sick....This problem has happened maybe 4 or 5 times in the past year. After driving for maybe just an hour and park I come back to start and my cruiser will start and stumble like it wants to stall or getting no gas. I cut her off and repeat samething, so I cut her off wait a minute then she starts up just fine. While driving never any issues of a stumble. Again this is really rare when this happens, but it happened again today. BTW the a/c is not on when this happens and the fan has been replaced a few months ago, so its not that. Also its a 2007 with just about 39000 miles

Digital, do the key dance and see if any codes come up.

Can you hear the fuel pump activate when you turn the key? Either way, try turning the key ON with starting the engine and wait a couple of seconds for the fuel pressure to raise, then start it. You could be right with your guess and for some reason the pressure isn't up fully and when you start, it's starving for gas until everything is correct. ...and that's just a guess on my part.
