Digging up an old thread, hoping for a fix. I recently purchased a 2007 1500 5.7 2wd with about 133000 miles on it and it does this same thing. Starts perfect cold, but extended crank when warm. But always starts. Did anyone figure out a fix for it?

There can be several things that can cause your issue. Pretty much all of them have been discussed in this thread. What have you done so far?

I read through the whole thread. Since it's intermittent it's a tough nut to crack. All tests come back normal. All regular maintenance items done. Truck runs perfect. Just hot restart issue. I didn't see where LumberJakl or 2010RamBigHorn posted if they found a fix. I was hoping one or both of them were still here and maybe found the fix for their trucks. Maybe it would be the same on mine. I also didn't want to go down a rabbit hole and fire the parts cannon at my truck. I did just find a thread shortly after posting on this one that he replaced the coolant temp sensor. I'll take a look at that tomorrow hopefully.

Ok, so I’m guessing you’ve done a fuel pressure test, leak down test and ruled out the evap purge solenoid? Leaking injectors and faulty purge solenoid are the most common failures for an extended long crank.

When the issue happens if you put the pedal to the floor does it start?

I have never found a fix. I have changed every known part that can be changed but still haven't resolved it. (Starter, multiple fuel pumps, coil packs, fuel injectors during lifter fix, etc...)

I've gotten rid of the Hemi and picked up a cummins a month ago

Yep. I've only had the truck a few weeks and I do keep forgetting to try the foot to the floor trick. By the time I think about, I'm already cranking and it's taking longer than normal and then I think, 'shoot! I forgot again' lol. I don't drive it everyday so I forget. I just need to find time to work on it again and dig deeper. Probably won't get to it for a few days now.

that's one way to fix it permanently, replace it lol

Thanks for the responses! Yeah, I just didn't want to throw parts at it. I'll let you guys know if I find something.

Maybe try Key on....Key off....Key to start.
That would run fuel pump twice before trying to start.
