Why won't my car start?

Asked by Dec 09, 2013 at 09:20 PM about the 2000 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2000 dodge durango with a V8 engine and 160,000 miles on it. I've been having
problems starting my car for the last 4 months.  Most of the time, I can eventually get
my car to start after a few tries and long cranks (7-10 sec.). But when it is wet out, I
seem to have a problem (like right now).  The car cranks, but will not start.

When I have gotten it to start, I have to press the gas pedal all the way to floor to get
the car to move out of a parked position. Once I've done this, the car drives normal on
the road.

I have also have noticed the car has a rough idle that seems to be getting worse.

I'm not sure if any of these symptoms or problems are related. Any help would be
appreciated. Thank you

Have you had a tune up new spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor ? Is the check engine light on ?
