Found a bulletin by running the code p0216 and it gives the usual tests to perform but it starts with the injector pump.
#00064G: Special Coverage (Policy) Adjustment - Electronic Diesel-Fuel Injection Pump Failure-Repair/Replace - (Apr 18, 2007)
THIS BULLETIN IS BEING REVISED TO ADD INFORMATION TO THE DIESEL EFI DIAGNOSTIC WORKSHEET FOR THE FUEL TEMPERATURE SENSOR, AND ADD INFORMATION TO THE SERVICE PROCEDURE. PLEASE DISCARD SPECIAL POLICY BULLETIN NUMBER 00064F, DATED SEPTEMBER 2004.
Some customers of 1994-2002 Chevrolet and GMC C/K, G and P model trucks; and 1997-1998 B7 school bus chassis, equipped with a 6.5L diesel engine (RPO L49-VIN Code P; RPO L56-VIN Code S; or RPO L65-VIN Code F), may experience a failure of the electronic diesel fuel injection pump.
Special Policy Adjustment
This special policy covers the condition described above for a period of eleven (11) years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Damage from poor quality or incorrect grade diesel fuel, and gasoline or water contamination, is not covered under the terms of the 6.5L diesel warranty.
This special policy applies ONLY to electronic diesel-fuel injection pump repairs and/or replacement as a result of injection pump failure. The pump repair or replacement will be made at no charge to the owner. This Special Coverage does not cover: glow plugs, turbocharger wear, low compression engines or PCM/PCM wiring conditions.
Fuel quality may cause driveability problems such as hesitation, lack of power, stall, no start, etc. For best results, use Number 2-D diesel fuel year-round (above and below freezing conditions) as oil companies blend Number 2-D fuel to address climate differences. Number 1-D diesel fuel may be used in very cold temperatures (when it stays below -18°C (0°F); however, it will produce power and fuel economy loss. The use of Number 1-d fuel in warm or hot climates may result in stalling, poor starting when the engine is hot and may damage the fuel injection system. For further detail related to Fuel System Specifications, refer to SI.
Involved are all 1994-2002 Chevrolet and GMC C/K, G and P model trucks, and 1997-1998 B7 school bus chassis, equipped with 6.5L diesel engine (RPO L49-VIN Code P; RPO L56-VIN Code S or RPO L65-VIN Code F) and built from Start of Production to End of Production, which begins and ends with the following VIN breakpoints:
Support parts required to complete this repair are to be obtained from General Motors Service Parts Operations (GMSPO).

Follow current in-country procedure.
Pump Replacement/Exchange Program -- For U.S. and Canada Only
Important: Do NOT order the pump through GMSPO or a Stanadyne dealer.
Important: Replacement gaskets, the engine shut-off solenoid and the pump mounted driver are listed in the Parts Information table of this Special Policy Bulletin.
The following information describes the exchange procedure that should be followed if the electronic diesel fuel injection pump requires removal under this Special Policy. Replacement procedure differs between the electronic and mechanical pump models.
Important: DO NOT REMOVE THE INJECTION PUMP. PROPER DIAGNOSTICS MUST BE PERFORMED PRIOR TO CALLING 1-877-446-8227. THIS INCLUDES VERIFICATION OF THE CUSTOMER CONCERN, PERFORMING SERVICE MANUAL DIAGNOSTICS IN SI, RECORDING THE VALUES, EFI WORKSHEET AND CHECKING FOR FUEL QUALITY.
If diagnostics indicate that the electronic fuel injection pump cannot be repaired by the dealership, call 1-877-446-8227 to request an electronic fuel injection pump. THE INJECTION PUMP IS NOT TO BE OBTAINED FROM A STANADYNE DEALER OR GMSPO, OR ANY OTHER ENTITY. For 1994 L65 vehicles built between SOP (Start of Production) and approximately January 15, 1994, make sure to identify the vehicle's pump model.
Important: Injection pumps received under this Special Policy have a serial number assigned and tracked to a specific VIN and TAC case. These numbers are printed on the package label or packing slip. Parts numbers for Special Policy pumps are also different than injection pumps purchased from GMSPO. It is imperative that technicians only install Special Policy Injection pumps on the assigned vehicle (registered TAC case). If a Special Policy pump will not be installed in the assigned vehicle, call 1-877-446-8227 for disposition of the injection pump.
Important: Failure to retain the defective pumps as required above violates the General Motors Service Policies and Procedures, Article 1.7, with a minimum of $800 (US) debit. Removed defective injection pumps ARE NOT to be sold by the dealer for remanufacturing, rebuilding or scrap. Under no circumstances are the injection pumps to be installed on any vehicle, sold at retail, or used in any other application.
Important: Damage from poor quality or incorrect diesel fuel, or gasoline or water contamination is not covered under the terms of the 6.5L diesel warranty. For proper diagnostics, refer to SI Bulletin 99-06-04-047A in order to determine if the vehicle fuel system contains metal contamination. Be sure to complete the correction for vehicle fuel system metal contamination before installing the new electronic diesel fuel injection pump.

Pump Serial Number from Tag on Pump:
Pump Part Number from Tag on Pump:
Number of Tkimes in for the same condition:
Number of days vehicle has been in dealership:
Does the vehicle have any aftermarket accessories?
Can the complaint be duplicated?
Have any parts been replaced?
Have bulletins been checked?

Is fuel contaminated? Yes No
Fuel level 1/4 1/2 3/4 full single or dual tanks:
Fuel rate @ idle: mm
Timing (actual vs desired):
Fuel temperature sensor voltage/temperature: Normal voltage is 1.58 volts at 35°C (95°F). As the engine warms up, the voltage should lower (varies with temperature - high temperature equals low voltage and low temperature equals high voltage). Use a digital multimeter (1994-1996) or a scan tool (1997-2002) and measure the voltage across the fuel temperature signal (CKT 1578) and the sensor ground circuit at the sensor harness connector. What is the voltage and temperature?
