Fuel injected vehicles have a fuel regulator,if this has a leak in it,it will flood the vehicle over night or lose fuel pressure so your cranking is raising fuel pressure back up or spiiting out all the fuel in cylinders til it can fire,check the fuel pressure regulator

I have a 1.4i,2000 model chico. My problem is that when the weather is too cold especially in the mornings, it does not quickly start. What might be the problem

Wow. where are you, and what is a chico? Anyway, by 1.4i, you mean it is a 1.4 liter injected? Does it have a cold start injector, like my toyota celica? (If it's not fuel injected, you may have a choke problem.) Kinda in the dark here. I had a chevy once that did the same thing, wouldn't start on first try. What I did was turn key and crank for a couple seconds, stop, then crank again-it always fired right up. Never figured that out, since it always worked. Try and see if it helps.

It sounds like a bad cold-start injector. Is the vehicle fuel injected?
If it is fuel injected, the intake manifold will have one injector per cyl, with one extra in the plenum. This last one may not be functioning.
If it has a carb, try setting the choke, and letting it warm up for a few minutes.

Car cranks fine, was running great, cold morning wont start, sprayed start fluid motor runs until either gone. fuel filter?

this could be a few things fuel pump getting weak or your alarm could of activated itself and it disables the fuel to the engine, I would try reseting the built in alarm system. first put the key in the ignition and turn on till all the lights come on and let it sit 10 minutes with the key on, then after the 10 minutes is over turn the key to the off position and wait 3 seconds and then try to start. if it starts which is possible because grand ams and olds aleros are bad for the security system locking up by them self. Hope this helps.

1994 Eagle Summit is hard to start in mornings but works great all day after it is going. Then it happens all over again the next morning. There is an engine code but don't know how to get it. Is it the...

Your car is fuel injected and has a fuel pressure regulator valve that allows fuel to return to the tank, one sure sign that the valve is bad is that it allows all the fuel pressure to return to the tank so you must crank and crank which in truth is not what gets it going. You attempting to start it multiple times is turning the fuel pump on for @ 30 seconds. Untill you have the valve tested try turning the key to on, when the pump stops running (whirring or light buzzing sound) turn the key off and back on again. After a few times the pressure should be built up enough to start the engine.

Start up time?

The obvious answer is "as short a time as possible". With that said, I usually allow a couple of minutes for fluids to get moving on warm mornings, but up here in Ontario in winter it gets pretty cold some mornings which requires a little extra for defrosting windows etc. I usually try to get moving as soon as it's safe to do so. Idling wastes fuel, contributes to air pollution, and is not good for an engine. Even if you feel better by going easy on the gas for the first few miles, at least your moving.
