Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
After my Dakota sits for awhile (overnight), it takes several attempts to get the engine to start. Starter, battery seem to operating appropriately. It always starts (so far) but the number of attempts seems to vary.
Sounds like you may have a leaky injector which is both leaking fuel into one of the cylinders, and bleeding down any fuel rail pressure. Extra fuel makes it hard to start, loss of rail pressure takes a few seconds for fuel pump to build pressure back up.

A bad injector yes, but more common is a fuel filter or a rubber fuel line leak.
