2006 avalon cranks several seconds before

Customer Question
2006 avalon cranks several...

2006 avalon cranks several seconds before starting-especially overnight. runs perfect otherwise.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes -battery and electrical ok. Is there a fuel pressure regulator besides the one on the fuel pump in the gas tank?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes myself. Replaced the fuel pump with a factory pump and the fuel pressure regulator(aftermarket) with no change in operation. Have about 90,000 miles on odo.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think there is a fuel pressure leakdown overnight.

there is no other fuel pressure regulator other than the one in the fuel tank. Have you confirmed whether or not you're getting fuel pressure bleed down? Even if it bled down to zero it should take less than one half of a second maybe one second that the most for the fuel pressure to go from zero to about 45 psi.

Cranks 2-3 seconds after overnight. Previously had engine start with 5-10 revolutions or almost instantly.

Check the fuel pressure as I mentioned? Have you had any code set in the computer or have you checked for them?
