My 1993 Dakota has recently been turning over for much longer than normal (5-10 seconds) before it will start, but otherwise running fine. It starts quickly if I have recently been driving it, or if i turn to off position and try to turn over again. So far it's not been a huge problem but Im worried about it getting worse. It has had no major problems in its 200,000 miles, just a new water pump and a few months ago a new fuel pump. any ideas? This problem started pretty suddenly.

I'd check the battery terminals. I experienced similar symptoms a few days ago except mine wouldn't turn over at all. I found a loose terminal connector that when wiggled, the truck starts normally. I tightened it up and it hasn't done it since. This may not fix your problem, but may be worth a look. Hope this helps.:)
