Truck will not start (not the battery)

Got up this morning to go to work and the truck wouldnt start. Plenty of battery keeps turning over but feels like its getting no gas? Any ideas?

I would think fuel pump or spark plugs. x2 on the more info needed though. What model truck, what engine, how many miles, etc...

Check to see if you are getting spark, if not, check the wires, coils, plugs, and crank position sensor. Check your fuel pressure if you have spark.

Give us as much info as you can. Model, engine, symptoms, sounds, what you have already looked at and found. This will get you better feedback.

Check EFI fuse. FIRST THING.


Fuck everything else. I've seen so many times when EFI fuses decided to ground out for some reason...and your sitting there cranking and cranking and cranking...but it won't start because no fuel is being fed.

This is usually a good sign the fuel pump isn't far behind from taking a crap.

^^ what he said.

Check your efi fuse. check for spark (insert screw driver into plug and hold it near your frame). If no spark, check coils, if spark, check fuel.

Any fuse blowing is a good indication that there is a problem. Fuses don't just go bad, something burns them up. A fuel pump drawing more amps due to wear and increased resistance is a good culprit.
Good call Ddog!

Check the leads to the pump. If it's getting power, it's shot.
