Long cranking
I have a 93 Mazda that I daily drive. It's something that just bothers me.
When I start it it seems to take a while 3-4 seconds of cranking before it starts. Battery, plugs, wires, rotor/cap are all new. It just seems to crank longer than most other cars that I've driven. I was thinking maybe taking starter apart and seeing if any parts need replacing.
I noticed on warmer days it will usually start right up or when I drove it 2-3 hours ago.

Fuel draining back maybe. Clogged fuel filter. Stretched timing chain (if it has one)

Fuel pump may be going out, not holding prime.
My 93 Mazda acts similarly, if it's sat for a while it's slow to fire up. Alchohol blended gas :mad:
