I know I have a lot of posts going right now. My girlfriend keeps pushing me to get a new car so I'm trying to sink enough money into Bonnie that she realizes she'll be kicked to the curb before Bonnie is..
This is a problem I've had for a little while. On cold starts, I have pretty long crank times. Probably a full 2-3 seconds of full crank. If I let it crank for a couple seconds and it doesn't turn over, and then I stop and turn the key again, it jumps right up as soon as I turn the key. Same thing if I drive it and shut the car off and turn it back on. Usually there is a small hesitation before it starts cranking in this case, but as soon as it starts cranking it starts up right away.
I'm currently leaning towards fuel pressure, which I haven't checked recently but if I recall correctly the last time I checked 3-4 months ago it was in the 30s when cold. I need to double check this. The reason I'm leaning toward fuel pressure, well, I think it'* close to the last thing on the plate.

I've got a lot on my Bonnie plate, but just looking for things to look at while I'm tearing her down in the next few weeks. Thanks for the help.
