Fusion slow to start after being warmed up

I have 1 2007 fusion 4 cylinder 2.5L 280K miles

It starts great cold always Often after I have driven it for a while and its warmed up and then shut it down, I come back to it to restart and its VERY slow to start. So far its always managed to start but it seems like its not going to, It takes a while of slow feeble cranking.

I suspect either the fuel pump or starter but not certain.Maybe something else? Not sure why after being warmed up it doesnt want to restart. Maybe someone has the answer to this one.

    If your cranking speed seems "slow and feeble" then we could be dealing with starter drag/starter issues, or some large voltage drop in the cables from battery to starter motor.

    Thanks for the response Is there a reason why this would only happen after its warmed up and restarted?

    Cold start (first start after its sat for several hours in the morning for instance) is always good
