Default 1996 legacy 2.2L, starting problems

This is one of my previous nieghbors car. The thing needs a temp sensor but thats a diff problem. He had a two day period recently where it wouldn't start and it has hesitated for months on start up, when it does start most times it chugs, revs high for 2 seconds (2k rpm or more) then come down and run fine. When it wouldn't start the third day he tried my Fathers trick of turn it to the ON position let it set for atleast half a minute and crank it, said it took probably 10-20 seconds for it to start but it ran fine.

my thoughts was maybe fuel pump having trouble on getting the pressure up, my fathers says maybe its the crank sensor.

What do you guys think or what was it if its happened to you?

i was having problems with hesitation and bad starts on my 95 L, turned out to be a bad throttle position sensor. you might also look into changing out the PCV valve, spark plugs, fuel filter, and maybe even sea foaming the intake manifold just for good measure.

i had suspected the TPS but nixed it out as his car is only throwing the po115 which is temp sensor but maybe its not bad enough yet. i'll start with other thing like you listed. thanks for the reply!
