Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

not knowing the year my guess is that your lift or injector pump is giving up. check fuel pressures. my 98 2500 with 100,000 miles is on its 3rd injector pump showed the same symptoms. started easier when cold i thought it might be that the fuel was denser therefor easier to pump

sorry had a seniors moment just noticed the year
