Check the fuel pressure on the truck should be around 58-60 p.s.i those truck have alot of problems with fuel pumps. you still might get pressure but not enough for the truck to run.If you are getting spark to the plugs its more likey a fuel problem, also the 4.3L vortec V6 has spider injectors and the fuel pressure regulator tends to leak on them,and the injectors do tend to have problems too. hope this helps
