2004 SRX V6 AWD. When starting the vehicle it fired, backfired and stopped running. After that is sounded like it had lost compression when cranking. After sitting for a day I was able to get it started after excessive cranking and firing as if it were flooded it would finally start with foot off the accelerator. Then it would run as if nothing ever happened. This has happened 4 times in the last 5 years Yesterday it happened again and this time I was only able to get it started by removing the air intake hose and using starting fluid.
I am totally lost as to why this is happening. I checked codes with OBD II scanner this morning before trying to start and there were
none. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Start by looking for leaks between MAF sensor and intake manifold, then for dirt at TB and MAF.
