2008 Ranger, hard to start.

My Ranger, with 130,000 miles, turns over for several seconds before starting. Runs fine once started. I've replaced the plugs, air filter and fuel filter. I can turn the key on and off 3 times and it starts right up. Seems like it's losing it's prime, if that is possible. Fuel pump?

More Info?

I'm experiencing this exact same issue with my 08 Ranger. Did you determine a solution? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
