Wowwww....I am shocked at the answers everyone is giving.You pumping the pedal is an illusion...it is the extreme cranking that you are doing that is allowing the auto to begin.Pumping the pedal will certainly perform nothing on an EFI motor. Pumping the pedal on a carbuerted automobile functions bereason it will certainly allow gregarding be injected directly right into the carburetor wright here the magic happens.All you are doing is opening and also closing the butterfly on the throttle body enabling more/much less air to enter the engine while cranking.Your problem may lie in the fuel mechanism...examine the check valve by the fuel pump cover. Check the O-ring on the fuel pump output shaft inside the tank.Can"t think anyone hasnt sassist this....CHECK YOUR CTS. That may be the only cause. Bad CTS"s are infamous on DSMs and they make your car exceptionally extremely difficult to start.
