2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD LT 8 Cyl 8.1L


why doesn't it start on the first try? I have to try it at least 3 times before it will run.

Had fuel pump replaced spring of last year. replaced fuel filter recently. has clean airfilter too.

how long has this been going on? was it happening before you replaced the fuel filter?
Has the vehicle ever had an ignition tune-up? what happens on the first couple of tries when you try to start the car? does it crank normally? not crank? or crank slowly?
