65,000 miles, I have to crank it a few times before it starts. Now when it warns up I have no problem. Do you think its a choke problem? I was thinking maybe I should spray some wd40 on the linkage. Any other ideas. I have put on about 1,500 miles since it came out of storge from the winter. I have put some high (100) octane fuel as well, thinking that might clean it up.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Check your fuel rail pressure via schrader valve, and clean the cold start valve. mine does the same. I think my injectors are leaking, that could be your problem also.
