Question 8.1 Chevy starting problem

Hi, I have a 2005 Winnebago Adventurer with W24 workhorse chassis. The motor starts cold fine and runs great. When the motor is shut off after reaching normal operating temp and restarted within say a half hour it takes several tries to get it started. It cranks fine but will not fire up. After three or more tries it starts up. I beleive it has a wireless accelerator pedal. Has anyone experienced this problem? Thanks

jrchep, Try this, disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes than reconnect the battery and try to replicate the previous hard start condition. I'm hoping it goes away!

There could be a number of things tio check but check the inexpensive things to do first.

Thanks for your response DriVer, I assume your thinking clear the computer memory by disconnecting the battery. Good thought, I will try it. We're traveling now from Florida to the northeast and will be stopping along the way and will try it then. Will let you know if it helps. It did it again today when I stopped for gas in South Carolina- third time is a charm, starting to get worried it won't start one of these times.

For INFO, On the driver side wall is a Label : in Big RED letters

Caution

Do not depress accelarator pedal when starting engine.

To start engine.... turn ignition key only

gg, thank you for your response, I am aware not to touch the pedal while starting, I was thinking maybe an allignment problem. I'm trying the battery disconnect now and when I leave the present location hope it helps. How do you like the remco shaft, was thinking of doing it on my 08 canyon two wheel drive.

DriVer, thanks for the battery tip, so far so good. Went from Hilton Head SC to Myrtle Beach with several stops along the way. Each time it started on the first shot. Thanks

jrchep, If you have not changed your fuel filter fairly recently, it could be causing the problem you are having. The fuel is pumped through the filter with the excess fuel returned immediately back on top of the fuel pump to cool it. If your filter has become partially clogged, (enough that it restricts the full flow of gas back to the pump to cool it), it can cause the pump to generate excess internal heat. That heat can reduce the pump pressure enough that in a hot condition it takes several tries for the pump to get the full 60 PSI the fuel rail needs to energize engine combustion (because of fuel starvation). Over time it can also cause a total fuel pump failure. When the pump is cold (after sitting over night, etc) it should have enough energy (because there is no heat generated electrical resistance present) to pressurize the fuel rail on the first ignition cycle.

Good luck!
