Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Can I start by getting your VIN and the code or codes in the computer?
Thank you for the VIN! I will do some research for you and post back in a bit. Thank you!
And those codes are not coming back any more?
Can I get those codes please?
Ok, no problem! Also, I would like to start by checking the fuel pressure when this long crank/hard start condition occurs. We could have a weak fuel pump. I will be looking forward to your reply!
Just because the fuel pump is running does not mean the fuel pressure is good/within specs
Again, I would recommend that you check fuel pressure first.
Using a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to the fuel rail. Have an assistant watch the gauge as you crank the engine.
Then we go after the ignition system and the air fuel ratio by checking the corresponding sensors.
You have a mechanic. That would be me. :)
I understand that as well. If you dont feel comfortable doing this, at least I was able to give you some ideas/possible causes and point you in the right direction. I am glad I can help!

Totally agree! That is why we test/check the system first before replacing anything.
