1996 Acura 2.5 TL
180k miles

When trying to start the car it isn't pumping the gas through like it is clogged, and is quickly getting worse. It starts off only lasting a couple seconds, and after fiddling with it from anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour you can finally get the car to stay on. If you can manage to start the car enough and get gas pumping, it eventually runs perfectly fine. The problem only occurs when the car has sat for a few hours. This last time a friend only got the car to stay on at all to get gas pumping by periodically pouring a little gas into the air filter and running the cars on the fumes.

Test for proper fuel pressure and that it holds first. Code reading could be helpful too,
