After the engin is cold you go to start it and the starter turns the engin over several times befor it starts. kinda like it is building up fuel pressure but it runs fine and starts fine after its warm can anyone help ?

I had this issue on a ranger one time. Ended up being a lot bigger issue than I thought. Check your spark plugs for oil on them. oil coating the electrodes is from either bad piston rings or valve stem seals. Either case, once the truck sat for a while, it took a good starter and fresh battery to keep trying to get it turned over. Check the plugs.
the cold cranking amps rating can be found on the battery sticker. the higher the number the better it is since amperage is the flow of current and will withstand longer battery use by all electrical and electronic components on a car. amperage of a battery is also affected by temperature so if the battery cca rating is low and you live in cold weather it will cause slow cranking. your starter is only as good as the voltage and amperage contained within your battery. so start with a good battery before condemning a starter.
what engine? what tranny, A/t or M/T????? auto or stick?
NO CRANK, turns over means nothing (starter turns, or crank shaft turns????? over.........????)
it dont crank sometimes. is clear. no guessing. at all.
by starters can spin and engine not, its one more clear symptom.
eg; starter spins and tachometer is dead.?
my guess here. is the key line is dead
see all tricks here. "see wiggles"
Try just turning the key over three times and listen for the fuel pump running without turning the motor over. Then on the fourth attempt let it try and start. If it starts then, replace psi regulator.
you need to replace the starter before it leaves you sitting stranded somwhere. intermittent problems with the starter means most of the time the starter is going out. for futher help call 419 689 1114 and i will be happy to assist you.
Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings
Sounds like the temperature sensors. I believe there are 2 on the intake manifold. This tells the computer when the engine is cold so that the computer can adjust for a cold start. I have had to change these several times.
If the starter was an issue, the engine would not crank.
