Generally the engine will crank fast when there is an issue with the timing of the engine, or if the cylinders walls are washed down from fuel. You may just have fouled out the plugs. That can happen in cold weather.Also holding the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking the engine shuts off the fuel injectors. So first, try starting it a few times with the accelerator pedal to wide open. If that does not help you need to remove the spark plugs and check if they are fuel soaked. Then either clean/dry them off or replace them and see if that makes a difference. Then we can go from there if needed. Thanks.
