Engine hard to start

20

Asked by Dec 06, 2014 at 04:04 PM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 ST 4dr Quad Cab LB

Question type: General

My Dodge diesel takes awhile to start when the engine is cold. Will take longer if not
more cranks to start when engine is hot. Sometimes it won't start at all until the next
morning when the engine is cold again. I can hear the fuel pump going on when the
ignition is turned on. Checked the fuel filter it looked good and clean. Had fuel injectors
replaced a year ago.
