98 Eldorado Starting Problems
I bought an Eldorado a few days ago and its having problems starting, in the mornings it takes up to thirty seconds before it starts, but starts right up if I turn off the car and immediately restart it. Throughout the day I have the same problem, just not as bad as the first time I start it. I would appreciate any imput you guys might have as to what might be causing this.

Put your eat to the open fuel filler pipe and have someone turn the key on (no crank). Do you hear the pump run for 2-3 seconds? If not, check the relay. If you do, check the fuel pressure.
