1999 Dodge Dakota Pick Up Truck with an 8 cyl, 5.2 ltr.(318 cid) fuel injected automatic but has some sort of throttle body atop the engine. Having trouble starting when cold. I have a block heater installed, which after 2 hours, or so, of being plugged in, the truck starts fine. Would the "Throttle Position Sensor" cause this hard start? Why does the engine have to be slightly warm in order to start correctly? Is there some sort of choke system within this throttle body that isn't operating properly? Is it in fact a throttle body? The truck runs perfectly fine other than this little dilemma, so I know it's not fuel pressure issue. Need a clear response from someone who knows. Thank you.
have the same problem?
