2001 Montecarlo cranks a few times before starting

I have a 01 Monte carlo SS 3.8. About 3/4 of the time when I try to start it, it will turn over and over before starting. If you just hit the key and let go it will act like it wants to start and then spit and shut off. If you give it gas and rev it up it does better. I also tried turning the a/c off and turn the key to on for about 10 seconds before starting and 2 times its helped, but it may just be luck. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!!

Maybe if you A) Posted this in the right place, and B) Waited more than 42-minutes for a response, you'd receive help. I'll move this.

Sounds like you need to tighten down your doofulator valve.
