    10k miles and periodic no start!
    turn key and just a labored whooshing sound- no engine turnover. return hours later and the truck starts after cranking over for a full 10count... odd.
    then its fine for days. dealer is confused....

    anyone else??? ideas???

    Sounds to me like a grounding issue, or the starter is dying...

    Hmm... I've had some periodic starting problems on my 09 as well... It always cranks over but sometimes it's hard to start - it'll turn over for a while and then I'll key it off, crank it again and it usually starts up.

    I know the earlier models had an intermittent no start TSB for extended cranking, but why is the 09 having issues :confused:

    sounds to me like the starter is working but the engine isn't turning over.
    fuel delivery issue????

    Had the same problem on my 07 when it was new. The TSB to fix it back then was...TSB EG011-07 for recalibrating ECM to correct OP Code EG5054 T1-T2-99. After the recalibration I haven't had the problem since.

    so a dealer can perform a old TSB to a newer vehicle?

    If any of you get your 09' ECU flashed via TSB, please post back here and let us know. I think mine may be having that issue too. Thanks

    someone needs to make this topic a "sticky"

    it seems to be getting more and more common.
