My 95 accent is very hard to start after sitting for a few hours. Seems like not enough gas getting to the carbuerator or something. Have to crank it over for quite some time at times too... If I stop cranking and then start to crank it over agian it will start right away. Have replaced the wires and a crank sensor and a MAF Sensor, fuel cleaners and fuels injector cleaners. Once the car has been running it is fine then for all day until it sits for a while again. Please respond via email if you have any ideas... as I am slowly going insane over this one. You can also post a reply to the forum here but please send me an email too if you can.

Thanks,
Lee.

Not something like the Battery or alternator? Or the starter itself?

dood, your car does not have a carburator.

It sounds like your fuel pump isn't working properly.
turn your ignition to on without starting the car (after it's been sitting), you should hear the fuel pump as a tiny whirring noise. Once you crank it over a few times, the pump has built up enough pressure to run fine, but after it sits, the pressure is lost, and the pump has to work to get it back.
My suggestion is to replace the fuel pump.
