1- we need fuel & spark to start , what are you missing one or both can you check ?

2- check all the fuses in the truck with a test light

3- if you are missing spark , look at the ckp sensor (crank shaft position sensor )

4- any fuel leaks,on the fuel filter housing can you check ?

5- do you have access to diagnostic scanner to retrieve fault codes ?

Please let me know

Thank You
