i smell gas..when cranking....i havnt checked for spark yet....the truck was running....i went into the store...came out and no start
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

Ok

Let's try this in case it's flooded for some reason.

Crank the engine for 30 second intervals while holding the gas pedal to the floor. Try this 5-6 times, then if it doesn't start, try holding it 3/4 of the way and crank it the same way.

Try this and let me know.
