Delay in Starting

More often than not, when I attempt to start my 95 Jeep Rio Grande, I crank and crank, and not until I hear some rapid tapping under the hood, will it actually start. I replaced the fuelpump relay. Thought it was fixed, but I was mistaken. Can some one help? It's getting worse and the local auto parts stores were no help.

I have the same problem on my 95 yj 4cyl 5 speed. It starts up on first crank but takes a little bit and runs good once its started. I checked the connection to my battery and it was okay but the wires connecting to the rings that go on the terminals are wearing down. Maybe check your connection but other than that I don't know what to tell yah
