Your suspicions are Correct. Before wasting your time & money - I suggest you visit an independent car-doctor, one who can diagnose fuel-injected engines. That is not the corner mechanic! Most dealer services, will insist on replacing everything in the fuel $y$tem.


When was the filter last changed ? How long has this been happening ?

"Since we towed it from the river" is not a good answer !

It would not hurt to add a can of gas-additive to absorb any water in the tank.


Talmadge Kemp what is the exact year and engine size etc. What have you checked this far?

Hard cold starts can be just about anything . Lets start with engine codes is the mil light on and if so what code is it casting ? if there's no code move on to easy things like fuel filter replacements air filter, pcv valve check plugs and wires . are the plugs fouled . They should be a nice shade of ash grey . if there black or wet this is an issue. Check the pressure on the rail . As I'm not sure of the engine so I cant speak to the exact pressure . How hot or cold an area do you live in , temperature can have cause and effect as well. If the pressure is off then you may need either a fuel regulator or fuel pump . If there are codes then knowing will help narrow it down . It could be map or maf sensors or o2 . these control the fuel mix and if its off it make a hard start . There could also be a fuel line leak . Look for puddles of fuel under the car or the smell of fuel when starting . When the car does start is the idle even or does it fluctuate up and down . If so it could have a vacuum leak . Just some things to look at but start by getting engine codes read . Hope this helps
