Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I you're having an issue only after the vehicle has sat for an extended period of time then I would first suspect fuel pressure bleedoff, either back through a bad check valve in the pump or through leaking injectors.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?

have to take it to a garage let them do it
should i change the fuel pump 1st

You can try replacing the fuel pump but that may not be the issue, testing needs to be done to determine the exact cause of the problem.
