Do you know how to check fuel pressure, ignition spark, and injector pulse when this happens to see which is missing?

Thats why I'm asking you

Code coming up shows a fault in the Oil Temp Sensor. Could that be it and how do I check it? That kind of makes sense that it starts when the truck is cold but not it you shut it off after warm

Can I get the code number?

To check fuel pressure you use a gauge hooked to the fuel line after the pump and before the injectors.

To check injector pulse a noid light is used in place of an injector, it should flash while cranking.

To check spark you remove a coil and plug, assemble them together outside the engine, ground the plug on the engine, crank the engine and you should see spark.

Once we know which is missing then we can begin to diagnose why it is missing on hot restart.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
