1998 Dodge Durango slow to start Sign In

I have a 1998 Dodge Durango with 5.9 engine and about 110,000 miles.It cranks over for a longer than normal time when cold.Always starts and runs good just takes longer than it should to start.When it's warm it starts like normal.Any ideas what to check.
Thank you
Roger

Put a fuel pressure gauge on it and see how much pressure you lose with the engine off over a one hour period. Post back with the starting and ending numbers.

Hook up a fuel pressure gauge before starting it in the morning an observe how quickly the pressure comes up to spec.
