2000 Dodge Ram cranking longer to start

7 posts in this topic

My truck seems to be taking longer to start up. It used to start up after a couple seconds. Now its taking 5-10 seconds to start. If it sits more that 15 mins it again takes 5-10 secs. to start. Once I start it and run awhile, then stop/start it it starts in a couple secs. Is my fuel pump starting to go?

Gas or Diesel ? 1500 or 2500/3500 ?

I am willing to bet that your fuel pump is ready to go out.That is how my gmc acted.

I bet the pump module assembly is at fault myself. The fuel pressure regulator is built into the pump module.

Before you start it cyle the key a couple of times. Turn the key on you should hear the pump run and then shut off after a couple of seconds. Turn the key off then repeat. Do this a couple of times and see if your crank time returns to normal. If it does than typically the pump is the problem.

I know for the Hemi's they have a flash update for this, but the 5.8l I do not know.

I would do what airjer said and it will help rule in a fuel pump.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
