Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The codes you have listed can be caused by any of the following,

  • Fuel Injectors
  • Restricted Fuel Pump Supply Hose

    In order to determine if its the injectors or a restriction you are going to need to do some testing. See the steps in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.

    GM has also released a service bulletin that deals with these code which calls for replacing the injector and return line as well for these codes. See it in the link below as well.

Thanks I'm sure that there is not any restrictions in the fuel lines specially on the one from fuel filter to the injection pump, pump is getting enough fuel, but I'm going to check the return line so you don't that injection pump or fuel pressure regulator is causing this issue
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Also can you give me more details how to check vacuum on the supply line
Expert:  Ron replied 12 months ago.

I would suspect you are going to need to do as the service bulletin requests. That means replacing the line as well as the injectors. There really is not much else that will set these codes and its a known concern as well. See the test steps in the link below.

We already replaced all 8 injectors almost 2 years ago
Expert:  Ron replied 12 months ago.

Well make sure you replaced them with the part number listed in the service bulletin and be sure to check the return line. There really is nothing else that will set these codes.

Ok I will check that today I'm going to put my fpr back I took it off yesterday but it's a expensive part and I don't think that's the problem so I'm gonna put the old one back
Expert:  Ron replied 12 months ago.

I would agree with you . I really think your going to find the injectors are the cause here.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.

In reference to what?

To check fuel return engine 1 relay has to be removed

I couldn't check the fuel return line but I got the truck running again and smell like diesel inside the cabin burning my eyes

That sure sound like the injectors are bad to me.
