Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

The issue that you are describing is consistent with the fuel pump located inside of the fuel tank not priming correctly and bleeding down pressure which results in your symptoms.The first step that I would suggest is to have the fuel pressure monitored and tested.
