get a smart phone app so you can get and post your data. We can help with MOST things, but these trucks are complicated and with no data all we can do is guess. That can get expensive.
Torque Pro or ForScan (I like ForScan because it reads codes the best of all I have found). Then get an OBDII ELM327 adapter (WiFi for i-phone and BlueTooth for Android. I like the BAFX brand. They work with most any app.
Total cost $40 or so. Without it you will replace more than you need to - can cost thousands.
In the meantime -
- Verify proper oil (both too low and too high can cause problems).
- Make sure fuel filters aren't clogged (drain the water from the WIF drain on the primary filter and see if junk comes out. Also, if the fuel filters have gone more than 10,000 miles, then change them.
- Then (with a helper), remove the secondary fuel filter and have someone turn on the key (no cranking necessary). The fuel filter bowl should fill QUICKLY!
- Re-assemble the fuel filter and then do the same with the oil. Remove the filter and have someone crank. - - The oil filter bowl should fill in 8-10 seconds.
- Inspect the air "filter-minder" to make sure the air filter isn't plugged.
- Make sure that the fuel inertia switch hasn't activated.
- Verify that your batteries and all the cables are healthy
- When you crank, make sure that you are getting over 150 rpm
