Starting Car. Isn't normal.
When starting my car after it has been sitting for awhile(either in the morning or after work) the car sounds like its gonna turn over right away, but I have to keep the key turned for what seems to me an excessively long time to turn over an engine. Makes the whirl-whirl-whirl-whirl-BOOM-engine on, but the "whirl" continues for quick some time before the BOOM. If I start my car after I've been driving, the car starts mint.
2000, 45k miles
Bought car @ 42.5k miles.
Haven't changed anything engine wise. Am getting my COBB CAI within this month, so I haven't replaced the air filter yet just cause it doesn't make sense to spend 60+ dollars for a KN that won't be in there long. The car was giving complete maintenance before I bought it, and was Subaru Certified. So, I would think that is the car needed plugs and filter, that they would have swapped them out. I am wrong?
But it may have nothing to do with either of these things. That's why I'm posting here.

Okay so here is what I think:
car only has problems starting after it sits for a while.
car always starts, but it takes a while.
When the car sits for a while the fuel has the chance to run back into the tank. When you turn the car on, and crank it, it takes a minute for the fuel pump to build up pressure so the injectors work. This problem would be accented by a dirty fuel filter, or partially clogged lines.
Have you ever changed the fuel filter in the car? Try changing the fuel filter and when you get in the car, turn the key to on, not cranking, for a second or two, then turn the key to crank to start the car.
See if that helps.

It show's ya how to do everything. Basically, you can let your car sit overnite, to reduce fuel pressure, take off hoses, remove old filter. Install is reverse of removal.
