Hard start on a '02 2.3L

I've noticed lately that my truck is hard to start. It turns over fine just takes awhile to fire. It never used to do this before and was curious if this is a common problem and can be fixed?

sounds to me that the fuel pressure check valve is going bad...thats allowing the pressure to bleed off when the truck sits...my car had that problem...try this before starting it cycle the key 3 or 4 times and see if it starts any easier
