Q: Truck not starting.

asked by on

Truck won't start.

When you say won’t start, I will assume it is a crank no start. There are at least two possible failures for the no start. First and most common is the the fuel pump and filter. The next most likely is the crank shaft sensor. My recommendation is to have a qualified mechanic check for fuel pressure and if ok then check the crank signal for failures.
