cold start trouble

Asked by Jul 13, 2014 at 08:00 PM about the 1995 Dodge Ram Van 3 Dr 2500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1995 b2500 Dodge Van with a 5.2 engine. The first thing in the morning my van will not start unless I leave the key in the on position for about 30 seconds, then starts fine. What will cause this problem?

1 Answer


Sounds like the fuel system is losing pressure. By turning the key on first then letting it sit you're pressurizing the fuel system. Most likely cause is a dying fuel pump. HTH -Jim
