Q: Motor making a weird noise

Hi. An engine that cranks normally but takes a long time to start is usually the result of a fuel or spark issue. On the other hand, a vehicle that turns over slowly is usually a sign of a problem in the starting system. It could be something like a worn battery or starter. One item that is known to fail on these vehicles is the fuel pump. There is even a technical service bulletin (TSB) number 96-25-22 regarding this issue. A trained mechanic will be able to inspect your vehicle's starting issue first hand and see if this is the problem.
