Default 2005 hard start

I have a 2005 v6 ranger with 118000 miles on it... it takes a little bit of cranking over for it to start most of the time... if I toggle the ignition on and off a couple times it usually fires right up. .. any ideas on if it's a fuel pump going out or fuel regulator?

I just recently had this problem too and it was the fuel pump. You should get a shop to run diagnostics to make sure though.

Do a fuel pressure test to see if it is the fuel pump.
