05 g6 gt starting issue?

sometimes not all. . . it just acts like it doesnt want to start. turns over just doesnt fire. if you give it a little gas it starts just fine. . . anyone got a suggestion? my cousin has a grand prix that does the same thing. . . once or twice a week. . .

Might want to try fuel injector cleaner. Or it could be like my old Lumina and have dirty spark plugs.

I have found if you give the gas pedal a little tap while cranking it won't do that.

its a lot easier to just go to the dealer and get it reprogrammed.. but if you like ghetto and embarrassing, thats cool.
