It's probably the fuel pump, although it could be the regulator for the fuel pressure or some of the electronic gizmos. You need to have the pressure checked to determine what's at fault and Autozone stores can pull codes to check the other stuff.

If it's the pump = about $400.00 fix.

i pulled off the fuel filter and turned on the truck, no gas , i cant hear the pump come on at all, i tried running water through the filter and its not coming out the other side, should it? i hope that this dont sound funny, but im not a mechanic, i just know how to use tools, lol, ive checked all relays and fuses and connections to the pump and they are all good, any advice would really help
