ok cool. I seem to be having some starting problems when warm. I do the "on" thing for 3 seconds. But sometimes I even have to give it some gas before it will fire? Any ideas bud?

You could try a new set of spark plugs.

Change spark plugs/wires.

Wires should be replaced every 2 years.

I'm surprised a smart guy like you doesn't know. I drew you a picture... its on top of the motor, close to the throttle body, on the front fuel rail.

I am not a mechanic at all. I pay people for that. when you can afford to, you will to.

Its funny, I can afford to, but I know how to work on my car, so I do what I can myself. Its foolish to assume what I can and can't afford, and quite rude. So, if you pay people to work on your car and fix stuff, why are you here asking questions? Just go pay somebody to take care of it. Anyways, there is the fuel pressure regulator, I'm sorry I'm not taking the bait into another pointless arguement tonight, you'll just have to find your fun (is it fun for you?) elsewhere.
