Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

The first thing you'll want to do is check for fault codes, but I don't suspect there will be anything related. What you're describing is caused by worn injectors nearly 100% of the time. What will need to be done is an injector return flow test and it will almost surely be found that return flow is excessive and the injectors will need to be replaced.
My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

the low temperature affects the injectors just because the engine isn’t warm? Because it works fine after it’s plugged in and running
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

Correct, that's the normal symptom with worn injectors.

Gotcha, makes sense the truck has over 240,000 miles on original injectors. Just wanted to be 100% sure before I spend $3,000+
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

That's quite a bit of mileage on injectors in an early engine. 2003-4 engines usually started to have issues at 75-100,000 miles.

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.
