Does the fuel pump have power or working? Check for fuel pressure? I rather diagnose a problem than throw misc parts at a vehicle.

Which engine do you have? The 5.8 or 5.0? Also has it been setting UNDRIVEN for a while? Or was it running ok then just stopped starting?

I took it to a shop and had it checked out.. The guy changed the fuel filter on it and said it was fixed... I did not even take it out of the shop before it stopped working again... This guy rattled off saying it could many different things.. I feel like the guy was playing me for money... So I decided to get your opinions on it... I will check the pressure and get back on here

Solenoid happened to mine. Check your grounds and inline fuses. It can be simple as hell. Fuel pump or filter. Try to jump the solenoid with a flathead with the key in on position. If it starts your reassured the solenoid is bad
