airdog /starting problem

I've been having trouble getting my truck to start after it's been sitting. Takes 3 or 4 10-15 second cranks for it to start then it starts real rough with a low idle. I have a new 58v FICM from quick tricks so I'm pretty sure that's not it. I realized today that my Airdog is leaking between the pump and the plate. Sounds like it's sucking air when the pump first starts then starts leaking fuel. Then continues to leak even after the truck is shut off. Could this be causing my starting problems? Thinking that it's bleading off pressure and loosing it's prime.

i doubt it. could be but even at that there would still be fuel in the rails to start the truck atleast. sounds like a bad gasket on the pump which you can call airdog and they can get you one pretty quickly. not sure what could cause it need more info

I called Airdog, they said the pump shaft seal was bad. I have a new pump on the way. If that doesn't solve the problem I guess I will have to put it in the shop. Very hard to start and when it does it chugs at a very low idle until it finally catches. Sometimes it wont start without me holding the accelerator to the floor.

That is GREAT man and it sounds like Airdog, really came through for you. Did they require you to send your pump in first? It doesnt sound like they did.

Kinda got the shaft on that one. They say I didn't get my warranty card to them in time so they didn't cover it. $165 but they got it to me quick. The new pump is registered. Live and learn!

See that is the stuff that bothers me. I am convinced that the airdog is probably the overall best way to go as far as an aftermarket pump goes but it just seems that too many folks get stuck somewhere and yea they have a "lifetime warranty" that IMO is a POS. Usually stuff that is warrantied for life very rarely fails. JMO. Eitherway glad to hear that the new pump is working great for you now and hopefully it keeps up.
