2007 VE SV6 Holden Commodore ute
Good Afternoon

I currently own 2007 VE SV6 Holden Commodore Ute with 270,000 Km. The issue I am currently experencing is starting problem on warm to hot days where it can take up to 3 times before the vehicle starts and when it does start it runs rough for few seconds and then comes good and runs fine I am able to hear the fuel pump when you first turn the key I am not sure given the amount of kms on the vehicle would this be sign the fuel pump is about to give in and I should look at replacing before I get stranded or would it be some other problem such as dirty sensor.

Purge solenoid.
Pull it out and try to blow/suck on it.
It should seal with no power.
If faulty, replace $60-70 from Holden
It has no fault code and can show up on hot days and after a refill at the petrol station

Yes you can get fault codes thrown up relating to this issue.
