No insult intended of course..............

Look to ignition and idle airflow, meaning IAC, PCV, and TB aircrack. Staying started when super cold requires hot clean ignition and airflow. I've stopped supercold start and die issues on others by cleaning the aircrack at the TB as well as new pcv valve.

There should be no need to 3-4 times key on to prime up pump, one time only or something wrong there..........................maybe leaky injector or bad pump if you can't hear it spin up.
