02 Monte Carlo Hard Starting

I just bought a used 02 Monte Carlo, 3.4l with 121K miles. It is very slow to start but runs fine once started. I pulled the front spark plugs (I don’t have the tools to either pull or turn the motor to reach the back 3) and they appear as if they were replaced recently. I am thinking of changing the ignition coil assuming that a fuel problem would be noticeable all the time. Any recommendations?

The Ignition Coil On This Car Or Another Car ?

I just had to guess. Guessing at a part or parts to replace is not the best way to go about this. The game can continue for quite some time and at great expense and lots of work. Proper diagnosis would be a step in the right direction.
