    Was towed Friday night and again Sunday. Changed out starter and starter relay as truck would just click. Truck wants to turn over but seems like not getting gas....Help! Any suggestions?

    When ever I suspect fuel problems I always recommend to check the fuel filter. Its cheap and easy to replace. Then when you pull the old one, blow through the new one and then blow through the old one to check the resistance. If you cant blow through it then its bad. If that does not work then work to the fuel rail and check the fuel pressure. Also when was the last time you properly charged and tested the battery?

    Thanks for all the input. After purchasing a new battery, new starter relay and a new starter, it still didn't start. We reset the fuel shut off thinking after the tow it shut fuel down. Still no luck. Checked the plugs, they were getting fuel. After putting the plug back in we tried to start again just for fun....it started. Not sure what we did, just hope it stays running. Again, thanks for all the helpful suggestions!:thumbup1:
