Do you have any codes stored in the computer? this could be anything from fuel, to spark. There should be no reason to pump that car, cause it's fuel injected. Pumping it will do nothing to help it start.

where can i get it on the computer at? all we have where im from is o reilys
If your check engine light is on, you will need to get an OBD2 code reader. Most autoparts stores will pull the codes for you for free, but it would be worth it to get a $40 code reader so that you have it when you pop another code.

they should be able to scan it for you. this is the 3800 correct? i would check the IAC motor to see if its all carbonated up. these cars are know for this but im not saying thats the problem just a could be. like Tony said need to scan for codes
