Vehicle won't always start right away!

The vehicle is a 94 Tracker ! When it is started for the first on any day there isn’t any problem. The problem will occur whan you go to start the second time after it has been driven some distance and then shut-off for a period of time.

You have to keep turning over the starter until it will start or (I know your not suppose to do this) pump the gas pedal a couple times. Then it will start. This occurs everyday the same way. What is the cause ?

I think you are going to have to have someone look at it. Could be weak fuel pump allowing vapor lock, sticking injector, sticking EGR, etc. I’d try to get a fuel pressure tester on it to see what it is doing when it is difficult to start.
