Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!!
Have you ever replaced the injectors? Hard starting is usually low fuel supply or injectors bleeding off causing low rail psi. A Cummins engine doesn't have glow plugs but rather it fires on direct injection and if the injection pump is supplying the pressure then the injectors are likely returning too much fuel or bleeding off..
To find the issue you will need to run a lift pump supply test, Injector return test, and then cap off each injector until it starts easier and replaced the blocked off injector.. I will say from experience I wouldn't replace a few injectors, if it needs 2 or more I would put a entire set in it because in reality they all have the same wear and you will get a much better running engine with all new injectors..
