Cranks but does not start right away on 2004 Ford Taurus

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.

Sounds like you have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Some testing is required to confirm this. I don't believe it has anything to do with what was done before.
