1999 Honda Accord Question: Takes a while to start...

 

Question

Wondering if this could be one of three things: starter (maybe), possible alternator starting to fail (doubtful but possible) or the main relay/ignition switch problem again (which I've had fixed 3 times, seems to go every 3-5 years). Also, I doubt it since there is typically no warning, possibly the start of timing belt failing (it's due for the 2nd time). Car also seems to run hard. I've been told the squeak noise awhile back was my alternator but I have had no problems with lights, battery, etc, though that may be an issue with the starting too. The TX heat is brutal on the main relay/ignition switch it seems. Any thoughts or other suggestions? It turns over, just takes it a bit, but sounds like it will go soon.
