Well, pushing the accelerator and letting it up has been working pretty good, but now I have a check engine light. Maybe that'll shed some light on it.
I will check when I am back in town what the sensor was that was changed. Were you able to see what the code was in the history?? Nitro has never left me stranded. It always starts when I retry after extended crank. It hasn't "extended cranked" in about a month. It raises my blood pressure every time it does. All the threads, all the great ideas, but still nothing solid. As I said in the beginning of my post years ago, you do something and you think you have resolved it and then six months later it happens again. I know nothing, certainly not a mechanic, but I'm a very good researcher and question ask-er! And being that mine has never thrown a code seems to make it very difficult to resolve.MY problem remains the same all year. Weather doesn't seem to affect it.
I'll get the cel code tomorrow, but the light went back out.
Has anyone tried the MAP or MAF sensor?
What ever happened?I'm not sure if you understand the actual issue. The starter is spinning the motor, it's just that it takes much longer to actually start.
Since mine will start if I depress and release the throttle pedal while cranking, I decided to replace the MAP sensor. I'll do that tomorrow, and see if it makes any difference.
If not, I will try the IAT sensor.
After that cam and crank sensor, if none of that works, I guess I'll just live with it.
I checked my spark plugs, all look good, so I'm pretty sure I don't have an injector issue.
There is no solution to this problem, the "extended crank". Until someone posts that they took whatever action and did not get an extended crank for at least a year, then I say there is no solution. I have followed several threads, talked with several mechanics, changed sensor etc. And because it isn't something you can replicate, it is difficult to solve. Someone may do something, think it is fixed because it doesn't do it for a few weeks and then it returns. Mine hasn't done it in months, could it do it today? Yes...I would key dance it, and it has always started. Does the key dance work? I don't know, could be a coincidence because I am sure there's been an instance in all these years when I didn't do it.What ever happened?
Did anything fix the cranking issue?
Same issue on my 2011 Nitro Heathi there guys, i have a 2007 nitro r/t,...... in the last couple of months i notice something pretty weird and very annoying. When i first star the nitro in the morning every is normal, it starts normal, all is good for now...., but almost after every ride of more than 30 minutes when i shut it off and start it back on it kept crancking more than usual, and it does it with the remote starter too....,
i have been looking all around for similar problems like this but havent see anything yet....., any help, any info on this pleaseee....!!!!
Thanks to allll!!!
Any update with heat shield?I've had the issue for a couple years now, I get around it with the "key dance", never really bothered me to do much about it as it has never not started but I figured I would look into it. I have 235,000 miles on mine, so end of its life anyhow. Talking with a mechanic of mine he said some Chevy and Honda models were notorious for this. The starter solenoid was getting too hot. The fix was to wrap the starter in a heat shield. Not sure if this helps but figured I would mention it as I have not read this fix yet nor have I tried it.
