Dose it run for a few seconds and then shut off? If that's the case, it's possible that the chip in your key isn't responding to the computer in the truck and the truck things its being stolen. If you have a spair key, try that.

No it wont run at all. I have to restart it atleast 3 or 4 times to get it to catch and start.

Is it cranking over every time but the engine won't start? Or do you put the key in the ignition, turn it, and nothing? As in the engine will not turn over until your keep turning the key about 10 times?

Its cranking over every time but the engine wont start.

Sounds like you have a bad crankshaft position sensor. Is it giving you a check engine light for error codes?

No

Ok. If you have decided that it's not an anti theft issue, I would replace your Crankshaft Position Sensor...........
