Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 42228 miles
Since owning this car for the past 6 months I've had trouble starting the car. If I turn the key to the on position to allow fuel pressure to build up it starts right away every time, but if I just turn the key and start cranking it cranks about 8 times and then catches and dies. It always starts right away on the second try. I'm thinking that this could be due to a bad check valve on the fuel pump? I also notice that as soon as the pump stops running there's noise from the fuel tank. I can't say for sure that it's a dripping sound. More like 6 or 7 taps or clicks that slowly fade out within a few seconds. Could this be due to fuel draining back out into the tank through the pump? Any thoughts on what should do? If it is a pump issue will it cause any damage to just leave it alone?
have the same problem?
