The first time I go to start the truck everyday after it’s been sitting for hours overnight, I turn the key forward to where just the electronics come on and to get the fuel pumping (not the starter or engine) and I wait about 5 seconds to turn the key the rest of the way (all the way forward) and the truck starts right up just fine every time I do this “1st start of the day process”.
But anytime I go somewhere (store, shop, etc.) I turn the truck off and when I come back shortly after (10 - 20 minutes, maybe up to an hour) I’ve tried turning on the truck the same way I do when I first start it everyday by waiting 5 seconds and it takes forever to start.
But I have also tried turning on the truck “regularly” (by just turning the key all the way forward without waiting 5 seconds as well) and that way also takes forever to start.
I’ve put in a brand new high performance air filter (SPECTRE).
I’ve sprayed the MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) with CRC MAF cleaner. Didn’t wipe on/off the sensor. Never touched it. Let it sit and dry before reconnecting
I’ve take the throttle body off and cleaned it off/out with CRC throttle body cleaner like brand new and replaced the spacer.
I’ve replaced the Serpentine Belt.
I’ve replaced the fuel filter.
I’m getting ready to change the spark plugs and replace the battery.
Can you guys tell me what exactly is causing this issue and how to fix it please? If you don’t know for sure, can you tell me what all to check/replace and I’ll do my best please? If y’all want videos of what I do/what goes on when trying to start the truck just let me know!
I love your YouTube videos! Ryan helped me with most of what I’ve done already so thank you very much!
have the same problem?
