My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Is this gas or diesel? I'm presuming diesel since you mentioned water in fuel

Do you have a check engine light? Diesels take a little bit more to diagnose and with that engine, it needs a scanner put on to check the oil pressure reading on the ICP sensor when cranking. If that reading is low, the truck will never start.

You mentioned it did start once, but how ong did it run?

Do one quick check. Look in the fuse panel in the cab of the truck at the fuse for the fuel heater circuit. It will be fuse 22. It is a 30 Amp fuse. It should be the top right fuse. If it is blown, the truck will not start. Check it first. They are common to blow in the winter due to a bad fuel heater element.
