It doesn't have a carburetor on it meaning that there isn't added fuel when the throttle is open, only air. Sounds like you are just running rich on startup.

Pull some codes first.

As mentioned pull the codes and check the fuel pressure on the rail and also see how long it holds steady pressure (engine off).

If you have two hands and a set of eyes you can change your fuel filter. It's about $8 at the parts store. It's under the car almost below the passenger seat. Really easy to change out.
