Crank but no start in cold

Asked by Oct 08, 2016 at 05:53 PM about the 1991 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr SE 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have recently started to have issues
with my 91 Dodge Dakota.  It cranks and
cranks but will not start when it's below
about 70 degrees.   I have had the truck for
4 months.  In that time I have replaced:
spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, pick up
coil, battery, fuel pump, fuel filter and had
the fuel injection system cleaned with my
last oil change.   I am at a loss and totally
frustrated and just want the truck to start
reliably.  Please help.  What else can I try
replacing.  I do the whole turn the key for a
few seconds before trying I start.  I hear
the pump click on.  Even some warm days
I have to do that trick twice and then hold
the gas peddle to the floor for the truck to
start but in the cold there is no getting it to
start.
