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 have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
