Customer Question
I have a 2003 dodge...
I have a 2003 dodge sprinter 2500 that will not start. I can start it with starting fluid and it runs and drives great. I can do 80mph no problem on freeway with no decrease in power when I'm driving it. I can not figure out why it will not start. Fuel lines are bleed and air free and fuel filter is new. Please help me!

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No the injectors have never been replaced. It has 96,000 miles on it.
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 3 years ago
There is a couple possibilities. First being the Fuel Pressure Solenoid. This is a solenoid mounted to the rear of the fuel rail that is partly responsible for maintaining Fuel Rail Pressure. There is an "O" ring on the unit that is prone to splitting or tearing. This can cause an internal leak that can affect fuel rail pressure when cranking the engine... This causes the exact symptom that you described...
The other possibility is one or more worn out injectors that are allowing too much fuel to return to the tank. Symptoms are the same. Hard or no start with out starting fluid and runs normal other than that. There is one way to check for "Suspect" injectors by removing the injector engine cover and look at the markings on top of the injectors. Suspect injectors are marked with a part number that includes the digits "1187" if you find these injectors installed, chances are good that you probably have at least one or more bad injectors... If this is the case, replacement is recommended...

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
