Default I'm About to kill my local dealership!!

My o6 quadcab hemi goes out of warranty in 600 miles! For the last month I randomly get extended starts when the starter is very inconsistent cranking my truck. Doen't matter is it's hot or cold, sometimes it takes 2 or 3 seconds to crank. This is embarrassing. Have taken it to my local dealership 3 times, and OF COURSE, they can't replicate the problem. I'm not a mech, but sounds like a fuel pump problem. I only run 89 octane and don't buy gas from no name stations. HELP

Did they check the inline fuel filter? Sometimes what feels like a pump problem is an engine starved of fuel because of a partially clogged filter. Also, at start up do you get some smoke? If so, you might have a leaky injector.

Default Inline Filter?

Sorry to jump of subject, but do 2002 and up Rams have inline filters? Cause every parts store and dealership I call tell me they are non-serviceable. Cant find a replacement filter for my truck anywhere.
