having the same issue as well. did you ever find the problem?

Update: After changing the above mentioned parts, I still screwed around with it and then it all of a sudden started right up. Thought okay, a fluke and drove it for the next 5 days, went out this morning and NOTHING. My wife called the auto parts store about a fuel pump, thinking this is what I needed. She spoke with a rep who mentioned checking the ground strap. Apparently Chevy trucks are known for this. It's a braided strap that runs from the engine to the firewall, sure enough it was pretty much worn through and broke in several areas. Best of all, $14 part and an hour of labor. Truck is running fine now. Time will tell. Good luck!

Glad you got it going again. I've actually already checked those so my problem lies somewhere else. I'm to the point of lighting it on fire and pushing it off a cliff lol.
