long turnover before starting

i am usually pretty good at diagnosing a problem with my TJ but this one has me stumped... i have a 2003 I6 4.0L with about 81,000 miles on it. i had recently got my oil changed and the day after it started giving me trouble, whenever I'm parked on the slightest incline with my front higher than my rear when i go to start it, it cranks for an unusually long time before finally turning over and once its running its fine, no rough idle, no studering, nothing. but if I'm level or my front end is lower than my rear it turns right over no problem. i don't think it has anything to do with my oil think its just a coincidence that it started right after but as to what could be causing it i am out of ideas. HELP!!!
