Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota 3.9 engine manual tran.. It randomly does not start.. it is almost always in the morning and usually or always when it has rained or snowed.. one time it has not started at 3 pm in afternoon after sitting all day at work. yes it was raining..Heres what i have replaced. Fuel pump, spark plugs , wires, distributor cap, rotor, and PCM..... last night as i came out to work .. it was raining.. and it did not start. It wll alwys eventually start after continual attempts.. the starter turns over fine.. but tahts all it does.. then .. somewhere between 10 - 30 min of continiual trying.. the engine starts to want to turn over.. i can hear it as the starter is goin.. then it turns into a chug.. as if the engine is starving for fuel.. then the next time i try to start it. is enough with me pumping the gas.. it starts.. Once started.. it will keep restarting the rest of the day... its only after sittin long times ei overnight and for some reason moisture is a constant variable... Do you think the crankshaft position sensor is a good thing to replace? or do you have ANY other ideas.. im soooo frustrated not knowing when i go out.. is it goin to start or not...Thanks
Try cleaning your battery terminals specialy the ground cable Make sure they are tight and also check the throttle body it maybe really dirty very cheap fixes try them see if this works hope it helps let is know

your fuel pump may not be supplying the correct amount of pressure, this is pretty much a trait of Dodge, it will click and make noise, but the pressure just isn't there, spray some starter fluid into the air cleaner system, and turn it over, if it starts this is your problem
