YOu need to test the fuel pressure, these are bad for low fuel pressure and causing a misfire. Spec is 48-55 psi and these are common for the pumps failing.

Ok then the fuel pressure regulator is dropping the pressure.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

But the Fuel Presssure Regulator is not leaking...& the car starts right away with no problems..

Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 4 years ago.
OK, but if the regulator is allow the pressure to cut out at 42 with the engine off, then it is too low and opening too early. It need not be leaking to be faulty.
