tbi on a 1987 chevy 5.7 engine

It takes about 4 or 5 cranks to get my vehicle started. Once started it runs perfect. This occurrs whether the vehicle is cold or warm. Replaced fuel filter and fuel pump and coil. Vehicle just recently tuned up for emmissions with new plugs,wires etc.Replaced the fuel filter twice in a one week period just to make sure I was getting clean fuel.TPS and EGR new.

Hi Tommy,
Take it for a ride, & when it's fully warmed up go home & shut it off, remove the air cleaner & watch the injectors for a fuel drip, from either one or both of the injectors, you may have to watch it for awhile, if it drips you'll need to replace the injectors & or "O" rings, Another thing to check is the TB base gasket.
Good luck,
Rich

Both of my EFI Fords have done that since I got them (one new, one slightly used), and I figure it gets the oil flowing a bit before the gas starts burning.

Alright Rich, I have certainly read about the advise you sent and will adhere to your advise. What I read was similar but instead of watching it the article stated to put a paper towel under the injectors and wait for the drip. I will do the eyeballing first hopefully I will catch the defect in action. I see your a shipbuilder, I can say I burnt a few rod in my day during the days with Local 602 Steamfitters and Local 5 Ironworkers. Went to Va Beach three separate times to work at the ship yards and each time a mishap occurred that held me back from getting employed. I guess it just was'nt my destiny to be a shipbuilder. Anyways thanks for the advise.

Tommy
