Fuel Filter -- doesn't know or care about the temperature

Are the Spark Plugs in the motor over 3 years?

Thermostat -how old is that ?

Oxygen Sensor --over 100,000 miles,replace it

Plug Wires? How old? & dist cap

What your saying-- is when cold-- it is in open loop & won't
run until warm & in closed loop.there is some clue to what
to diagnose

Are all the vacuum hoses on according to the diagram
under the hood ?

What is the fuel pressure at the schrader valve on motor,
with & without the vacuum hose on pressure regulator?

Is the battery any good-test it

What does a loud clicking noise indicate that seems to quiet as the engine warms when cold starting a fuel injected dodge pickup indicate


The oil may be to thick or a partially blocked pick up (check the sump for a big dent) Lack of oil changes will also cause it as the oil starts turning to sludge & partially blocking things. As the oil warms it gets thinner allowing it to pass around the motor easier. I DON'T recomend the oil flushes. The motor may have to be partially disasembled eg: sump off to clean pickup or tappet cover off to replace lifters etc... Start by changeing the oil & filter with the recomended grade.

How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.

I have a 1996 dodge dakota pickup has trouble starting .....


Not knowing your truck, I'm not sure what Dodge calls it but there is a device that monitors the ambient temperature and sets the fuel-air ratio accordingly.
The "Idle air control" can be used for this in some makes. If this or some part of it has failed, the mix is probably not getting enriched enough to ensure reliable cold starting.

1990 dodge colt,does not want to start in the cold


If it starts with a shot of WD-40 then fuel delivery is obviously a problem when cold. If intake air temperature sensor ( for one) is telling it that its still real warm out, then it won't give it enough fuel to start on a cold day, which requires more fuel.
