My 1999 Mazda B2500 SX sometimes won't start immediately, it takes four or
five times of cranking it over before it starts. What do you think is wrong?

Try cycling the key on then off several times next time you have a cold start situation. If it starts normally after cycling the key then the fuel pressure is bleeding down. The most common cause if that's the case is the fuel pump pressure check valve not seating properly.
