On the 93, the FPR is located inside the intake, you must take off the top of the intake to see the FPR. DO NOT, start the engine with the top of the intake off, it will rev uncontrollably.

You need to take the intake top off and inspect the FPR

Give us more detail about the starting problem, does it sound like it wants to start?

Have you checked for codes?

Once you get the cover off and locate the FPR on the fuel rail, turn the key on to energize the fuel pump, but DO NOT crank the engine. If any fuel leaks from the FPR nipple it needs to be replaced.

Explain your hard starting again, is it cranking, slow, fast, etc

Try holding the pedal to the floor that shuts off the injectors in case of flooding the next time

One thing at a time. Lets condemn or rule out the FPR first.

Load test the battery and check and clean the battery connections especially the positive cable
