Q:

excessive cranking time for engine start on 1995 Saab 9000

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have to crank engine 15 to 20 seconds (not always) especially after a long period parked before engine starts.

Id would double check your fuel presure after it sits and see if it is bleeding down. Might have a faulty check valve in the fuel pump
your fuel pump is bleading back into the tank you need to replace the pump to make sure this is the problem put a fuel pump tester on and turn on the car dont start just in run and check the preasure and see if there is leak back
