I have a 96 taurus. I have to turn it the key to on 4-5 times and then start it before it will start. Its like it doesnt keep pressure on the line. If I just crank it, it takes awhile to start. Would it be the fuel regulator?

It's most likely a failing fuel pump. My '03 Chevy S10 does the same thing. If your fuel system has a check valve in the fuel line it's bad and letting fuel flow back into the tank when you shut it off. HTH. -Jim
