Can you be more specific? What kind of problems? Slow crank? No crank? Long cranking times with no start? How many miles are on the vehicle? If you can give more details I might be able to help you with your problem.

Its long cranking times with no start. The cranking sounds normal, but it just takes a really long time. I just replaced the air filter and still no luck. There is about 75,000 miles on it, and thanks for replying to this littlehorn!

Could be several things. Have you had done a tune-up lately? Ran a fuel system cleaner through the vehicle? Have a check engine light on? Had the fuel pressure checked? Checked for spark at the plugs?

I'm having the same problem any response
