I read a few where it didn't start but you are correct it isn't common. Most likely because people swap out the unit before that happens. You can check the fuel pressure to determine if it is your issue. Did you start up your car recently and move it a short distance then shut it right off? This causes me a hard start every time.
When my car wouldn't start. I would turn the key to on, wait, then off and repeat a few times trying to build up pressure in the line. I eventually had to just keep it cranking while fluttering the gas pedal and she came alive. Sometimes I would just have to walk away for a bit and let her sit.
205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank
