Ever since I put my car back together, it's seems to take 3-5 cranks to get
it to start. When it's warm it seems to start no problems. What would be causing
this? Bad crank or cam position sensors? I'm not getting any codes for that.
Looking for suggestions.

When the plug on my crank position sensor loosens up it becomes impossible to start.
How had is it to replace the crank PS? I am convinced that it is the culprit that keeps my car from starting on occasion still. My 96 has also taken a bit longer to start all the time lately.
Very easy to change. Go through the passenger side wheel well. Just take off the tire and remove the front splash shield and there it is. Be sure the wire is secured because it may chafe on the belt. This too may be the problem.
15 - 20 minutes....
I have changed mine while the car is on the ground in about 10 to 15 minutes. The hard part in my opinion is unplugging it from the harness WITHOUT snapping of the retainer clip. Turn the wheel all the way to the right and lift the rubber flap at the bottom of the passenger side forward inner-fender liner. You can get to it easier by removing the passenger front wheel and forward fender liner then pulling ti after removing the single 8mm bolt that secures it.
