The check valve on the fuel line at the filter housing may be leaking back not maintaining pressure when the engine is not running.

2002 dodge ram won't start if you step on gas peddle before starting it. What causes this? If you wait a couple of hours it will then start


Fuel injected engines don't need to be pumped before starting, if you do flooding can occur. Make a conscious effort NOT to touch the pedal until after you turn the key to the start position and the engine actually starts.

Hard to start


have you checked for any air locks in the fuel lines these can be caused when new parts are installed or fuel tank is ran dry. i had this problem on my golf and originally thought the cause was dirty fuel. i bought a bleeder pump that attached to the filter and bled the air out. priming if you like.
