Rough starts

Lately, in the mornings, I have to crank the engine for about 5 seconds or even twice for it to start. I just had a full tune up and replaced the distributer cap/rotor, plugs, wires etc. Could it be the ignition coil.

I have the same problem with my 93 4 banger. Interested in the reply. And it's only in the mornings. I have to turn the key for a second or two, let off, then do it again and it starts right up????? Hope we can get an answer...

I just noticed that my battery gauge reads at just below the midline, I wonder whether it's the battery.

thats the way its suppose to be....I have a 95 four banger and it does the same thing. I know nothing is wrong with mine because my dad has a shop and I have replaced everything. I would not worry about it.
