Did fixing one problem cause another?

I just replaced the EVAP system in an 02 TJ that I recently acquired. When smoke tested, the entire system looked like a fog machine, so I had to replace everything. Anywho, the check engine light is no longer glaring at me, but now my poor TJ takes a few tries to start up. The starter will turn the engine over, but it rarely fires up on the first try and sometimes takes 5 or 6 turns of the key to get going.

Has anybody had this problem? What might I want to check? I don't know if the EVAP and starting issues are directly related but it would be quite a coincidence for the second problem to appear right after the first one was fixed.

Cycle the key (without engaging the starter) several times and see if it starts, if so then you have a fuel issue with the check valve in the fuel pump assy in the tank or you may have a leaking injector.

Yeah, that fired it up. Looks like I might have to check/replace that fuel pump. Thanks.
