Delay in engine start (almost misfire)

Question

Guys,

I noticed a slight delay in engine start (slow cranking) about 3 times in the last week. But it did start in one push all 3 times but with a delay and almost misfired.

Thing is this happened not in the early morning but in the middle of driving when I stopped for some groceries for about 10-15 min and came back. I suspected the battery but searching the internet I found there maybe problems in ignition, spark plug or anything.

How should I get this checked?

TIA

Have you cleaned the throttle body/injectors/plugs/fuel filter/fuel pump? Our car required long cranking a while back until I got those things cleaned and now it's a one shot start :)

Yes I'd better check them out first before coming to a full stop in the middle of nowhere. :D So far this occurred after driving for a while and when the engine is hot. So I guess it may not be the battery? Morning cold starts are working fine so far.

If battery was the problem, then I don't think you might even have a cold start. Because during the cold temp of the morning, batteries are at their weakest. It's why weak/old batteries tend to die during winter seasons. You case doesn't sound like a battery issue, more like fuel system and intake related.
