Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. What problems are you having? What do you mean by getting a start?
So it was sputtering like it was running out of fuel but now you have a no crank no start or the engine will crank by the starter but will not start?
Thanks for the info. Automatic or manual transmission? Check all fuses and relays. Test fuses for power on both sides with a test light with the IGN switch on. Swap relays with a known good one for test purposes. Test for power at the small S terminal on the starter solenoid with someone in the cab turning the IGN switch to the cranking position. There should be power there. If there is but the starter will not crank with good batteries and connections, the starter is the problem. If there is no power there then the problem is either a faulty IGN switch ( Test power in and out in all positions), Clutch switch ( Manual trans), Neutral safety switch ( Auto trans), Fuse, Relay, or harness problem. Let me know
