You most likely have a problem with the check valve of the fuel pump,this allows the fuel to drain back to the tank, hence the long start times. The fuel pump is in te tank, I suggest you replace it.

The red security light comes on in my buick century 2000 and sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't! it may take 5 minutes to start or sometimes an hour!1! please can i disconnect a fuse or


If it is an aftermarket system you should be able to disconnect it.
You may have to look for extra wires attached to the fuse box to find the source of power.
Factory systems usually have the word security in the cluster.

My 2004 Nissan Sentra starts ok on the first start. When I shut down for about 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes it will not start. I leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it starts right up. The Nissan Dealer...


you may need headgasket. nissan has a fuel pressure regulator kit, but that is for "long cranking" issue, where it takes about 5 seconds or more of cranking, before the car starts. the problem is leaking regulator, which results in loss of fuel pressure from the system, after you shut the car off. What you describing is a condition, where coolant enters cylinders after you shut the car off, resultin in the coolant flooding your plugs.
