Q: Extended cranking time on 1999 Ford Mustang

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car takes along time to start. Cranking time is anywhere from 3 to 7 seconds. Doesn't matter cold or warm engine. Any ideas ??

it could be a number of things, for sure check your fuel rail for fuel pressure(should be I thinks omewhere around 60-70 pounds of pressure...also your crank sensor you will need a noid tester to test this.. one other possibility I can think of offhand is your wires may be losing spark somewhere as they are stretched tight on these models and can rub the coating off and lose power from there...
