Default my acura MDX 2005 takes long time to start and even makes noise?

I have changed spark plug and the battery is good (tested) by mechanic , after all it doesn't make any different , it takes about 3 second to start with noise . the mechanic says its because I used regular gas for it (I know it must be premium gas) ! but really ? I don't have any idea . does anyone know how to fix these issue ? thanks.

could be your starter, have you had it read or checked by an OBD diagnosis machine? any error codes? its best that you have the ecu plugged in to a diagnosis machine so you can pinpoint the exact problem.. the symptoms you mentioned are just too broad for anyone to provide you with anything exact.

Does it crank normally? If yes obviously it's not a starter issue.. Those starters commonly get noisy but they still remain reliable.. As far as the extended crank time you might want to have the fuel pressure checked.. And it will not show up on a obd checker unless it actually turned the check engine light on at some point so that would be a waste of time..
