Slow ignition start

Ive got a 96 Grand Cherokee Laredo and I takes about 10 seconds to start. It always cranks but it takes way longer than the average vehicle. What could cause that?

Tune up. Clean the air filter. Run some Lucas fuel treatment. Ethanol us crap to injectors. Check your fuel pressure. Maybe the fuel filter starting to get clogged.
These are some ideas to start with.

Ive done a full tune up and changed the fuel filter and put BG44K in it but Im wondering if it could be the crank position sensor? It idles a little rough and it has a new upperstream O2 sensor so Im just wondering if that could be the case

Def, just change your CPS, more than likely the issue

When you swap it get the OEM cps.

You're going to have to go to a real church and ask forgiveness for selling the jeep. Lol.
The OEM part is better and cheaper.
