Slow Start after long drive

So, I've recently had NSS troubles (i.e. no cranking, starting in neutral, reverse lights, etc...). I tried to clean it the other day, but could not get it off without possibly breaking it.

Around this same time (both before and after NSS attempt) I started noticing that occasionally, after driving for a while, I would get a slow start. It will crank fine, but I can't get it to fire up unless I really give it a lot of gas.

It never happens on a cold start though... only after I have driven it a bit, stopped, and then try to start back up. Seems more frequent on long trips.

should i start with the CPS? or Cam position sensor?

I know a better internet mechanic will come through, but I'm thinkin that possibly the NSS is either just gettin' worse coupled with you may need to check the pressure at your fuel rail. Definitely get that NSS cleaned out and re-installed though.... I know their's a write-up on here somewhere...

soon to be enforced in close to all threads....
