when sits for a couple of hrs
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 7 months ago

I misunderstood your last response.

From what I understand it has a long crank time EVERY single time you start it? If you shut it off and restart it one minute later, will it still exhibit this condition?

Hello,

You stated: " I have replace the injecter pump rebuilt the injecters and tube also new lift pump"

Which "Tube" are you referring to? Are you referring to the Injector Connector Tubes?

Did you inspect the fuel line "Tee" at the rear of the engine? Sometimes they leak here and cause air to enter the fuel system over a couple hours of sitting.

What you must do at this point is check all fuel lines from the tank to the engine and check for possible leaks. Keep in mind that these leaks may not be "Visible" leaks where you see fuel exiting the fuel line but they may be invisible leaks that only allow air to enter the fuel system. These types of leaks are usually on the suction side of the lift pump.

Also you stated that you replaced the lift pump, was this replaced with the same engine mounted lift pump or did you replace it with the In-Tank style lift pump?? (This is IMPORTANT especially if the retrofit upgrade wiring is not in place)...

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

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.
