problem #2

Jun 282005

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
When the truck is off for several minutes or more, it takes several seconds for the engine to start. This started when it was about 5 yrs old with about 70,000 miles on it. It will start immediately if it has just been turned off. I suspect a lowering of gas line pressure when the engine is off.
