Why would there be a pause after you turn the ignition before the car starts?

Just because the starter has been replaced, it still shouldn't be ruled out. I have had several occasions that a remanufactured starter failed. Typically Autozone or Advance auto parts stores carry these POS. Having said that, I would be looking for a bad connection or maybe an ignition switch. Some vehicles have a large heavy relay to drive the starter motor, if this is old, dirty or damaged it may be sluggish to operate Some new vehicles have a ignition switch that sends a signal to the ECM and the ecm tells a relay when to turn over the engine. These have a delayed effect. Brake pedals will be incorporated this way also, eliminated the hydrolic brake systems completely.

This sounds like a slow internet connection, the only way to solve it would be to load the video and pause it before it starts. Then after a few minutes you can return to it.

There could be a comma before "as well" but it isn't mandatory. Try speaking the sentence out loud. If you pause at a particular place, then that is where you would put in a comma.

Cycle the ignition on/off/on/off/on and count the flashes of the check engine light. A pattern of two flashes, pause, two flashes would be a code 22.
