Engine Performance problem
1998 Oldsmobile Aurora V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 148000 miles

hi my car take a long time to start up. It keeps cranking on the battery and I am afraid to wear the battery down. What could be the issues associated with this type of performance?

Welcome to the forum. How long since a tune-up? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Go from there. If you don't have a gage, some of the national brand autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage. Also, have them check for any possible trouble codes. They used to do that for free. You can ask.
