2003 GMC Sonoma Question: Cranks several times before starting

Had the fuel pump changed and the problem went away for about 2 weeks. Now it's back to cranking several times before it starts. It starts immediately if I re-start it right after running for awhile. I think the fuel pump is loosing its prime again. What else could be causing this?

    Was the Check Valve replaced as well? Because this sounds like the Check Valve is bleeding down. The Check Valve holds fuel pressure when you shut off the engine.
