    Hot weather, cold weather, sitting for 5 minutes or overnight I turn the switch it cranks and starts for 1 second then dies. On the fourth attempt it will start and stay running EVERYTIME, you can bet your life on its consistentcy. I could live with that but it has an off idle hesitation that could get you killed pulling into traffic, does that 75% of the time after it does crank and stay running.. Jiggled key,no change. I had a spare distributor so I swapped them,no change. Replaced the relay,no change. New fuel filter,no change. New Denso pump,no change. Any suggestions?

    I wondered about that because when I checked the fuel pressure I pulled the regulator hose and it went up, but when I hooked the hose back up and pulled it off again the pressure didn’t go back up.
