80 CJ5 takes about 15 to 30 seconds of cranking to start. Cranks fine just takes awhile to get fuel to the carb. Any ideas?

A carb overhaul or rebuilt carb should take care of it. The bowl isn't holding fuel as it should. A leaky needle and seat, a bad check valve, or even a hairline crack in the bowl itself can cause fuel to drain off after sitting a bit. Hope this helps.

Kia sportage cranks but seldom starts??


Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

Could be a fuel problem. I would have someone check fuel pressure before and after cranking the engine. You may be loosing some fuel pressure back into the tank when the engine is off.

Takes several cranks to start truck,even though it is fuel injected.once started,fuel is pumped fine.


May be having fuel pressure problems. I would change the fuel filter if you haven't in awhile. A plugged filter will cause the fuelpump to overwork, not build proper pressure & wear out prematurely.

My 1989 ford bronco 5.8L engine starts but if I turn it off when it is hot it cranks but takes awhile to start again


Three things to look at. You didnt say if it was carb or injected. If it has a carb then most likely the fuel in the carb bowl is leaking down and causes it to start hard. Or the choke is closing/sticking and causing same. Also look at the heat shield that goes between the starter and the exhaust. It may be gone and when the starter gets hot it wont work as well.

I have a 1979 Jeep CJ5 6 cyl. The Jeep starts and


With the engine off, Look down into the carburetor and move the throttle. If you don't see a healthy squirt of fuel. the accelerator pump has failed. The carb may also have deposits in the fuel passageways and may need an overhaul including a good soak in carb cleaning solution.

Hard starting after sitting awhile


My 98 Jimmy runs on synthetic oil and starts well after sitting in cold weather. If the weather is the problem, try checking that. If it is warm... sorry no ideas.
