Default hard starting

im havin a "problem" it isnt killin me yet but its a nuisance, and its kinda embarassing.
whenever i go to start my car with the key it cranks for about 7 or 8 seconds before the thing will actually fire which confuses me! (sometimes when cold and usually when warm)
and when i start it with my remote starter when its cold it usually starts like a normal F.I. engine but sometimes even so it willl crank (what seems like forever)until it starts.
if read the haynes for this problem but im lookin to see if someone can help me pinpoint it exactly!?
and lemme know what all is gonna need to be done!!?!?
thanks a bunch
Jason
