Ya... does the engine hesitate to turn over? like is it sluggish? if so then its your batt, run a Load Tester on it to see if its any good, if thats not the issue, what do you mean by it not liking to start? could you describe it?

Try priming the fuel system first by clicking the key on for 2 seconds then back off, repeat that two or three times, then finally turn it all the way to crank. If it starts easier then there is a check valve in the fuel pump to keep the gas from all running out of the lines when the car is parked for a while and sometimes it goes bad.
