    Damp inside distributor - spray some WD40 to ensure the water is out and it should start.

    Also check the fuel pressure regulator. Hard starting is often caused by by a regulator that does not hold fuel pressure after the engine is shut off. Next time you go to start it takes awhile to build up sufficient fuel pressure for the fuel injectors to operate properly.

    Check your Canister Vent Purge Valve Solenoid.
