Hi there. Check the oil pressure sensor and see if its working or sticking. When the oil pressure sensor is sticking or not working correctly, the computer will cut the ignition and fuel off until oil pressure is met and then the engine will start. The oil pressure sending unit is what could be malfunctioning and causing your engine to have a 5 second delay in starting for a year length of time. If you need further assistance with diagnosing for oil pressure, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
