How to get my truck to start, battery was weak but even when boasted won't start ,but turns over?


If you aren't getting fuel to the injectors you may have a clogged fuel filter. If you haven't changed the filter at least once a year it may be the fault. It can restrict the fuel flow gradually until it just won't flow anymore. Engines start harder in the cold so as it is, but this can make it worse. I hope this helps some.

It sounds like your ignition module is starting to go bad. As it gets worse it will be harder and harder to start, until it doesn't start at all. Your crankshaft sensor could also be going bad. Hope this helps.

Ah, you give many very good clues, all of which point to a problem with the fuel pump.
The cold/wet scenario - moisture getting into the contacts, possibly on/in the starter or fuel pump,
but the low fuel scenario points to the fuel pump. The fuel pump must work a little harder to pump
fuel when the level is low - it works harder to pressurize the fuel rail, and harder to supply fuel for
starting. A fuel pump that's starting to think about failing will struggle under these conditions.

1999 hard starting expedition, with 5.4 engine


fuel pump may be going. try this. turn key on, listen for fuel pump to run for 5 seconds. Turn key off, wait 15 seconds or until you hear relay click inside car. Turn key on again for 5 seconds and ff for 15 seconds. repeat once more. This will pressurize fuel system to 40 psi so injectors have full pressure. If it starts quickly now, you are getting bleed down through the check valve in the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail.

1998 Chrysler Concorde Starting Problem


First of all, you should never touch the gas when starting it, on a fuel injected engine. Whether engine is cold, or warmed up, you shouldn't touch gas pedal. That was o.k. years back when carburetors were used, but not with fuel injection. Yes you will cause flooding especially when warmed up. Now there is a good chance you have a sensor or something acting up, but I'm guessing they checked for that when checking battery problem. You may be able to check for codes by cycling key, have yoou tried that, or had codes read yet?
