Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'ll be assisting you with your question today. Give me a few moments to review your question. Please keep in mind that I do not know your skill level or abilities so I may be asking a lot of questions before I can answer. In this case we may need to respond to each other quite a bit before I can come up with a possible solution for you. As far as phone calls, If you didn't request it, it is the Website prompting you, not me. A Live Call is a "Premium Service" and will cost more money. I prefer communicating via this site, but in some cases a phone call may be recommended.

What are the exact symptoms now when you try to start it? do you hear anything at all when you are trying?

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

I know you stated the battery is good but I always start with the battery on issues like this. How did you determine that the battery is good?

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

Ok, Did they actually run a "Load Test" on the battery? Were you watching when they did?

Does that 25 amp fuse blow now when you try to crank it?

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
