Default Starting problem on a 98 ES300

I have been noticing that my car will take longer to start.
When I turn my key, I can hear the starter cranking but I usually have to hold the key in the starting position longer to get it fired up. I had this problem about 2 years ago.
Took it to the dealer and they said it was a Idle Speed Control Switch.
They replaced it for about $400.

The symptoms are the same and I think its just a matter of time before it completely gives out.

Does anyone know if this is something simple enough that I can replace myself ?
