Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
2001 alero 2.4 L engine will crank awhile before it will start,it isn't the battery,the fuel pressure regulator had recently been changed,only has this problem when its been sitting 20 minutes or longer
May have small fuel leak or fuel pump sending unit leak down. Or fuel pump psi low.
After 30 minutes try this turn key on. do not try to start wait 10 seconds turn key off then on again 10 seconds then try & start if it starts right away fuel system is losing PSI either back through the fuel pump or a leak in line. If you can find no leaks would suggest replace fuel pump & assembly.
Another possible but rare fuel injectors may be leaking fuel over time & dropping PSI needed for start up.
