I have to hold ignition for 5-10 seconds before my truck will start. Sometimes I have to do it twice. Once the vehicle starts it runs great. An employee at Advance auto said it sounded like my Fuel pressure regulator, what do you guys think?

if it is the pressure regulator here is how to replace it on the 93

  1. Remove the three screws attaching the pressure regulator to the throttle body. Place a shop towel around the inlet chamber to contain any fuel remaining in the system.
  2. Pull the pressure regulator from the throttle body.
  3. Carefully remove the O-ring from the pressure regulator and remove the gasket.
To install:
  1. Place a new gasket on the pressure regulator and carefully install a new O-ring.
  2. Position the pressure regulator on the throttle body and press it into place.
  3. Install the three screws and tighten them to 40 inch lbs. (4.5 Nm).
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. Test for leaks using Mopar® ATM tester C-4805 or equivalent. With the ignition in the RUN position, depress the ATM button. This will activate the pump and pressurize the system. Check for leaks.
  6. Reinstall the air cleaner assembly.
