    sounds like you have a fuel pump leaking down and not holding pressure

    Check the throttle body around the throttle plate for sludge build up. It will restrict the air flow when starting and case extended crank time. If you give it a tad bit of throttle and it starts up faster that's a sign it needs cleaned.
