    cranking too long before t kicks over{intermittant)

    My 97 SLS NEEDS HELP
    I recently had a new fuel pump and fuel filter installed because the car would take about 2 minutes of cranking before it would start. After the new fuel pump and filter it would start right up but during the same day if I went start it up it would take about 5 seconds of cranking before it kicked over.Now,some days it will start right up and other days it will take a few seconds of cranking
    before it turns over.Any suggestions will be greatly apprieciated.

    Thanks
    Pauli

    I wouldn't worry too much about a few seconds of cranking time -
    but to answer your question - a couple things come to mind -

    IF you have a leaking fuel injector -
    the fuel pressure - after you shut off the engine -
    COULD be bleeding off through that bad injector -
    flooding a cylinder - adding to cranking time -

    another possibility is the fuel pressure regulator -

    If your long cranks times are only in hot starts, check for a leaky FPR.
