Car sat all day (had to take the volvo to the zoo-yawn drive!). Took it out this evening. In order to get it started I had to give it gas and let it sputter through a couple times. First couple times it started right up, and then immediately died. Did this 3-4 times, then I decided to give it the extra gas. As stated it sputtered and stuttered, and then roared to life like the 7-8 time. This has never happened before. After I got going and seemed to clear out whatever was happening, it did not happen again. Test will be tomorrow morning.

Anyone know what this could be? Fuel filter clogged? Ignition was immediate, it just didn't stay running.
