a leaking injector does cause that but the angle thing doesnt make sense.
I had just a little over half tank. I thought about the fuel level. but if the system was working correctly why would that matter. It surely was enough to get picked up. What really confuses me is the way it runs when it does finally kick over not one miss or hesitation at idle, running at speed limits or accelerating. And it has just recently started doing this. I also had the snap on analyzer run and had no codes. It's Monday now maybe someone has had this problem and make a suggestion.did you not have much fuel in the tank when it did this on the ramp?
I don't know the pressure but the pump is new and it passed the fuel flow test. It is the pump that's mounted on the side of the block. Thanks, Please keep the suggestions coming. a couple local mechanics are also stumped because of the difference in the starting when at the angle when launching at boat ramp. I just want to figure out the reason so I can get it fixed without Parts changing like on the fuel pump mistake I made.what is your fuel pressure from the lift pump?
Great suggestion NOW where is this valve or process located? I am sure it's survivable. can it be replaced? Please someone with 5.9 knowledge help me get my truck fixed so I can go fishing. The next thing we were going to do is put a check valve into the suction and return line. Don't want to do that if there is a correct way.There's a fuel return off of the rail I assume?... I wrk on big trucks so my experience isn't in 5.9s. Anyway u let a common rail set for 2 minutes and your rail pressure drops to workable pressure. That valve that controls that (check valve). Could that be leaking the volume in the rail, on the grade?

Only a guess that the leaking injectors were the last one or ones and more fluid was allowed to leak out because of the front being higher than the back. It's been starting and running like new since the replacement. And pensacola has such a bad reputation for injector rebuild is why I went with the NEW oem ones. the cost was ridiculous but I guess after 11 years of use it's worth it. If Dodge had any balls they would have issued a recall for the old steel check balls in the 2003s that they changed in 2004. At least thats what I heard so don't know if it's fact or not. I got my truck back. :confused013:Thanks for the update and the added info! Any idea why it would start on level ground and not on an incline/decline?
