Help with a starting issue

I just purchased a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 4.7 HO engine. Occasionally when trying to start it, It turns over longer than normal before it actually starts to run. up to 4 seconds. Once it starts to run, there is no problem and it runs great. The dealer said they origionaly thought it was an issue with the after market remote start so they disconnected it. However, it continues to do it occasionally. Doesn't matter if it is cold or hot. I just went to start it after not driving it for almost 48 hours and it started easily. Some times it takes longer even when it is warm.

Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
