I have a 95 Dodge Ram 2500 with a Cummins 5.9L turbo diesel that runs great, but has trouble starting if it sits for a few days. After sitting for a few days, it will fire right up for a couple of seconds and then it starts to die. I have to work the throttle to get the rpms up for about a minute or so and then it runs fine and will start right back up after that. I would appreciate any help on figuring out what causes this problem. I know my way around gas engines, but I don't know much about diesel engins.

Thanks.

I have had a lot of problems with the rubber fuel lines getting brittle and cracking to where it drains back to the tank. After it is running, it is ok until it sits for a period of time again.
