For a while now, when I start my vehicle cold, the starter turns over just fine. However, as soon as the engine kicks on and the starter stops cranking, the engine stalls and I have to crank the starter again. Almost always, starting the car a second time causes it to start correctly.
I'm still relatively new to DIY vehicle repair, so if anyone could help me provide more information about the behavior of the vehicle and other recent repairs I've tried, I'd really appreciate it.
The car has recently had plugs and wires replaced. MAF was recently replaced. O2 Sensors replaced recently also. Other maintenance (oil, fluids, etc.) has been kept up as scheduled.
One suggestion was to run a high quality fuel system cleaner through the vehicle, I'll give that a chance when I'm doing some other maintenance work on the vehicle and see if that helps.
I am going to be replacing a leaking water pump this weekend on this car, as well as the belt - not sure if that could be related to this issue or not.
