My car has trouble starting.

When starting, my 3.0 liter 2000 manual transmission eclipse turns over strong. While the battery is charged the car has no problem turning over. I have to pump the gas for my car to start. When running there is no loss of performance and no hesitation. It has a clean fuel filter and band new fuel pump. It has been recently serviced with new oil and filter plus new exhaust. Please help!

Sorry I wanted you to know that it turned over so it's not a battery or starter. But my car won't start just with the key. You must pump the gas. I tried the flooring trick but that doesn't work. I have to pump the gas when starting which I find very annoying and possibly harming to the vehicle.
also, I would like to add that it only has trouble starting if it sits overnight or more. if you start it within a few hours of running it last it starts up fine. I haven't hooked it up to a guage because I don't have one. I might just have to take it to the shop.
