My car is throwing a code of p050d and has hard time

Customer Question

Customer: my car is throwing a code of p050d and has hard time starting and shuts down after it starts, but on high speed it runs ok.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: it has to be cranked few times before it will start and when it does start it shuts down, if I hit the gas pedal after starting it is ok and drives ok. But again it takes many cranks for the initial start and has a code of p050d.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Dodge Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

This code may be set by a throttle body issue or intake restriction. Check the air filter and intake between filter and throttle body. There may be a software update for this, so check with the dealer to see if the PCM (engine computer can be updated. Now I can send you a diagnostic procedure for this code if you wish. Let me know,
