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
