Teuton62,sound,s like you have a vacume leak,check all vacume line,s and your in take gasket,may have a air leak.A vacume leak would fool the ECM and flood the truck out.

Ok thank you I'll check that out. With the pressure Guage attached turn on key Guage goes to 40 lbs but drops to 18lbs. Once key is turned of pressure drops instantly. I had changed fuel pump 1 1/2 years ago I mistakenly put an Airtec pump in. Finding out that they aren't worth the effort of installing them.
