Hello, There are a number of reasons that may cause the vehicle to take longer than normal to start, however this is usually due to a fuel delivery problem resulting in insufficient fuel being supplied to the motor at startup. This can happen when you have a faulty or clogged fuel injector or possibly a weak fuel pump that may not be pumping fuel properly resulting in low fuel pressure. This may also be a result of incorrect ignition timing as well, which could produce a delayed start. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle to determine what may be causing the hard starting.
