Re: odd starting issue
Lots of cranking when real cold after sitting awhile? Not a vehicle problem - procudure problem - you.
Your fuel pump is in the tank. When you first get in, turn the key on but don't crank - wait about 10 seconds for the poor cold pump to have a chance to pressurize the fuel system. While it's cranking the pump doesn't pump.
It may not have done it as brand new, older pumps are slower, especially cold.
Stand to the side and carefully listen - you can hear the pump run for a few seconds. It stops when pressure's up, or when a preset time is reached. It doesn't start running again until the engine starts and you have tach pulses.
Reason is to prevent flooding and or filling a cylinder with fuel accidentally.
