Default Re: Cranks for a while before starting...

98' was the first year for the returnless fuel injection system that incorperates a pressure regulator built into the fuel filter. Unlikely it's a leak down issue unless the fuel filter is over due for a change (100k mile recommended interval) OR, you have a leaking injector or two which would most likely also show up as a decrease in fuel economy. You'd most likely SMELL a fuel leak downstream (or anywhere) from the pump as any leak would be WORSE under full pump pressure. A weak battery is a possibility, though it would tend to manifest itself in other ways first I'd imagine. Most "Gen 1" Saturns fire and start more readily than their OBD2 siblings. You can thank OBD2 for that, as the more one fancies up the plumbing (or electronics) the easier it is to stop up the pipes...
