Just so I am clear here, the engine will crank but won't start?
Or no cranking at all?

It will make a noise like it want to crank up but wont

Ok

Did it have any running or starting issues prior to the timing belt replacement?

Hello

Did you see my question?

No. It did run hot one time that's when we replaced the radiator then the last time it ran hot that's when it didn't want to start up anymore

Ok

A couple of things I would try and you may have already. I can see you've done a lot of work here.

First, try spraying some carb cleaner directly into the throttle and then crank the engine. If it has spark and compression and is only lacking fuel, then it should run for a few seconds. If it won't run for a few seconds, I would do a compression test. This is for a couple of reasons, first to make sure the timing is on, secondly to make sure nothing bad happened to the engine when it overheated. I would also check and make sure any security lights go out. It could be the security system preventing the truck from starting.

If the truck will start for a few seconds on the car cleaner, then that would indicate either a fuel pressure issue or the fuel injectors aren't working. This will lead to further testing.

Please try this and let me know.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Where exactly is the throttle

The throttle is on the engine where the air cleaner duct work connects up on top of the engine. one side has the airl cleaner, the other side is the throttle. Take the hose off of it and spray the cleaner in there.

OK. And if it's the security system what will I need to do?

In that case the key would need to be reprogrammed either by the dealer or a mobile locksmith.

They would need the whole truck to do that as well.

One more question. Just for my understanding, So with it making noise and seeming like it want to start it still maybe the security system?

Possibly, but I think it's more or less going to come down to the timing being off to be honest.

That's why a compression test would be helpful. If you have some very low cylinders it could point to that being the problem.
