Hi Everyone, I am have a problem with my fuel delivery.

It started a week ago when the I started the truck on two seperate cool damp days and the truck idled poorly, sputtering and rattling. Once warmed up, the truck ran perfectly on both occasions. I had assumed bad plug wires or a coil issue, I saw that one lead had come out of it's socket and was laying on valve cover so I moved it.

The next day (dry and hot) I was driving down the highway loving my truck when it suddenly lost power, it was a very gradual slow down, engine misfiring and occaisonal sputter. I did not detect a bang or other mechanical sound.

When I tried to start the truck it would sputter, rough idle low for a couple seconds then die. This continued for a while, I got towed home.

At home I have confirmed that I do have spark so ruled out Crank Sensor. I checked for voltage at fuel pump and found that when cranking I had voltage. I replaced fuel pump (whole assembly) and still no go. After this I checked more closely and noticed that I do get power to pump while cranking, but not in Position 2 (no priming). The relay does not seem to be tripping in Pos2. I have swapped the relays around (for some reason 3 of my yellow relays are the same part number) and symptoms do not change at all.

I have no codes, engine cranks, will start using starting spray, does occasionnaly fire to life with low rough start but dies almost immediately.

Any ideas?

First of all, have you replace your old wire set with some 8 mm silicone wires, what color are the wires and how many miles on the truck?
A crank sensor could still be the issue, they normally don't throw a fault code and it can also shut off the fuel supply.

The truck has 180,000 km ( 110,000 miles). The wires are blue and were changed by PO, they all appear in good condition.

But I do have spark, I pulled a plug and set it on the IM. It sparks while cranking. And the truck will start with spray. I thought if the crank sensor goes you get no spark.

OK, then 2 things.
1 you can not tell the condition of plug wires from looking at them.
2 you still need a crank sensor.

No problem, will order both. They just look pretty new and are 8mm.

I just didn't realize that I could still have spark with a crank sensor being gone, thought it killed both.

Hopefully the crank sensor solves things as I am running out of money and ideas. Just moved across the country and funds are right until wifey gets a new job...

Most parts store carry the crank sensor, as for the wires, 8 mm blue are usually the best I just wanted you to know the only true test is with a OHM meter. In your case, if you haven't had a rough running and or misfire codes leave them alone.
