Resolved Question:

i have a 2000 honda accord ex. when you drive it for fifteen minutes or so and turn it off, it will start right back up. it also starts pretty good in the morning. however, if you drive it and let it sit for over 10-15 minutes it will crank for up to 30 seconds before starting. if you let it cool down for an hour or more, it will start pretty good. check engine light is not on
