Hello and thankyou for using just answer. I suspect your issue lies with the injector seals, this is a common issue on these engines , what you will need to is remove all 4 injectors and check the side walls of the injectors for any scoring or wear, also you need to check the side walls of the cylinder head for scoring, this scoring and wear on the injector seals allows the fuel to drain back to the tank over night or when left standing for long periods of time, then you will have to crank vehicle over for long periods to draw fuel back up, abit like bleeding the fuel system out, if you find scoring on the cylinder head the only real proper fix for this is to replace the cylinder head, but if the cylinder head is ok you and the side walls of the injectors are ok then you will need an injector seal kit for each of the 4 injectors, replace the seals and copper washers and then refit all components , hope this helps Chris
