Thread: Rough Starting
06-25-2009, 10:33 PM #1
I have a buddy I put a new motor in his 94. 350 TBI. The truck runs great but if he parks it for any length of time, like over night, the gas will drain out of the line and he has to turn it over a bunch to get gas back to the throttle body. Once it starts it will run fine sometimes with less performance for a few minutes untill it warms up.
My first thought was fuel pump but is there anything else that might cause the gas to seep out?

ive heard of this before.i dont know what would cause it but try turning the key to the on position (but dont crank it)and let the fuel pump prime the line.wait a few seconds then try cranking it.i may be way off but wouldnt hurt to try?sombody else may be able to help you out a little more-Dylan

Fuel pressure regulator might be slowly losing the pressure. Try letting the pump prime the lines first before you try to start it. Good luck.Mike - OREGON
