I have a 1999 Dodge Dakota with a 5.2 liter 318. I have been having problems starting after wet conditions after the truck has been sitting for a day. I have automotive experience and I am very good at trouble shooting. I have replaced the distributor cap, rotor button, and plug wires and spark plugs last year. I might have put 10k on since. It started great all summer and I use it as a work truck. It is a gas aholic so I commute with a car. I love my truck but I am getting frustrated with the issue. Dodge trucks in there older years always had moisture issues. This truck was doing great up until recently. I have replaced the fuel pump a few years ago because it failed on me on the road. It almost seems like its not firing the gas. I think because it sits more now that something has become corroded. If that was the case it wouldn't start in any weather. On a dry day it starts within seconds. I don't see any bad wires or connections. It does start after turning it over a lot. I mean a lot. What should I look for? Is this still a mopar issue? Is there something I spay to dry it out? It does run great after it starts.
