      YES, it sounds like the "in-tank" or "pre-pump" fuel pump. In my experience with the
      business of waiting an hour, then it starts, usually indicated some type of fuel injection
      problem. I suppose if you are lucky, it's only a clogged fuel pump (?). You can always
      check the connections on the in-tank pump-and it won't cost you a cent- in the boot
      (trunk), under carpet is an access panel-round about 9" in diameter-remove screws-and
      inspect connections-be careful not to damage connections-GOOD LUCK- also if this pump
      needs replacing-do it yourself and save money !!!
