You need to see if the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off, if it is the check valve in the fuel pump is defective and the pump must be replaced, this issue causes long crank times before the engine starts because the system has to build pressure in the fuel line. To test the check valve hook up a fuel pressure test guage, start the engine and run it for a few seconds, turn off the engine and watch the pressure, it should no drop off more than a few PSI.

1994 Bravada will not start after sitting idle for about 7 hrs


To clarify - are you saying it does not crank, or does not start ?
lt sounds like you are saying the engine will crank but not start, but then why would you need to jump the battery if that were true ?
If it cranks but does not start, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking ? The fuel pressure could be low after sitting for a few hours if the check valve in the fuel pump is faulty.

make sure the air filter lid has been put back into proper place, if they left it loose the engine would **** more air while trying to start, so you need more fuel to balance it out.
