2004 Ford Taurus Question: Cranks but does not start right away

I have to crank my engine 2-3 times before it starts. Had it to Ford and they updated the computer. Was Ok for several months. It has started again. Only now i have to crank it 5-6 times before it starts. Runs just fine once it starts. -
