My car's transmission is unknown to me.

It sounds like your fuel pump is not working properly. The engine is not getting fuel if it has to crank that many times and still barely starts.

I would recommend getting your fuel pressure tested by a certified mechanic to determine if the fuel pressure is low. If the fuel pressure is low, you likely have a restriction in your fuel system or the fuel pump is getting weak.

After this has been determined, I would recommend replacing the fuel pump and the fuel filter to resolve this issue.
