There's a check valve type thingy in your fuel line to keep fuel from running back to the tank, if that's failed you won't have fuel to your injectors immediately.
yep that worked great ..started right up first crank

Jerry Bransford Yep, when the valve inside the FPR starts leaking, it allows gasoline that is supposed to stay in the engine's fuel rail for fast starts to instead drain down and back into the gas tank. That extra time to get the engine started is how long it takes for the fuel pump to get fuel back up to the fuel rail that the fuel injectors plug into.

catfish33 FPR (Fuel Pressure Regulator) on top of the Fuel Pump.

Thoughts on Why a Long Crank Till Start

My 4L ..5 spd likes to crank a long time before it fires up. Overall it runs great.
190,000 miles, no oil usage, no leaks , great oil pressure. Plugs look good but did not check the gap.
Anyone have any thoughts on the reason for the long crank?
