How would Earths seasons be different if the eccentricity was 0.05 and Earth had a 36 hour day?

Seasons are controlled more by Earth's tilt, not eccentricity. Depending on timing of perihelion, a greater eccentricity will cause larger temperature extremes.
A longer day, or slower rotation, would make a year 243 days long with a leap year every other year. Not sure it would affect climate significantly.
