Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you.May I ask some questions to get a better picture of what I'm dealing with/ Has this got a carburetor or injectors, or throttle body injected?
So in reading your notes you stated that if you put fuel manually into the throttle body itself it starts and runs ok itself, that the issue is the initial starting it has to have help with? Is this correct?
Thanx for that info, then I suspect the ecu temp sensor may not be not working properly. this looks like a temp sensor usually near the thermostat housing , try it disconnected and bridge it with a jumper wire, also check for voltage thereat connector.
ok thanx for that info, give me a bit to check over the system and get back tomorrow if that's ok.
Good work and I don't have much faith in any aftermarket electrical parts they tend to get you going in the wrong direction such as this.Please do your self a favor and get OME injector they will have the right number for your vehicle as well giving them your truck's vin number and production date.
Yea I wonder what parts people smoke in that back room when they get lost looking for parts. Any way I think your on the right track with all that info you shared with me. Good luck and keep us informed.
cheers ***** ***** guess next time check to see if the parts person has glassy eyes ,LOL good luck.

Aw yes, check that wire to the ECU and or replace the ECU by probing it you made it work because you bypassed the ECU'S ground circuit and made it work.perhaps you can find a good
