ATL peeps - Hit me back

Just moved to the area ( Lawrenceville ). Normally do all my own work, but currently living in an apartment while looking for a new home. Unfortunately, apt does not allow residents to work on their vehicles here. Currently having extended crank time/loss of prime/ECM issues. Looking for a knowledgeable, honest tech in the area to work on my 2500 who knows OUR trucks and systems. Would be willing to travel for the right guy if rate is reasonable. Any help or direction is appreciated. Meanwhile, everyone have a great holiday and stay safe.

Lets start here...

Dies the WTS light illuminate immediately with the key on ? Or does it take a awhile ?

Extended cranking....nose up, parked over night long crank ?

Nose down, over night starts fine ?

You can try SNUGGING the return banjo in the rear off the head. This can actually cause a loss prime issues with no fuel leak present, and suck air at idle and cause a hiccup or miss.
