My truck has 56k miles on it and the dealer replaced the intake gasket, the
water pump and the fuel pump prior to my purchase. I have driven it about
1300 miles or so and when I cranked it last, the engine ran for
approximately 2 seconds and then cut off. Subsequent tries yielded nothing
more than the starter turning over; the engine would not crank. I am not
positive, but usually when I turned the ignition, I could hear the fuel pump
come on (to prime)...I do not hear this now. Should I anyway or could that
have been an indication of a problem? Any ideas on what this may be before I
take it back into the dealership...which will probably involve a tow!?!
explain this more:
"Subsequent tries yielded nothing more than the starter turning over; the
engine would not crank"
I still vote that the fuel pump is your problem, but are you saying that the
engine does not turn with the starter?
The engine would turn over, it just wouldn't start. It's moot now, the
dealership sent a rollback for it this afternoon. I luckily had a 90 day
limited warranty that covers the fuel pump...unless, of course, they try to
tell me it's not the fuel pump, which I know it is.
