Take a look at the starter and starter relay if they get hot it will give you a no start..

It turns over fine. Good and strong.


Ok you could be loosing pressure at some point when you have the no start, you say you are reading 38- to 40 PSI. I would like you to install a pressure gauge on the rail and watch the pressure reading after the truck s up to temp and you get a no start, Watch the gauge to see if you are losing pressure.

Neal Clevenger

Ok...I'll do that. Before I changed the pressure regulator I did that and was losing pressure as soon as the pumps stopped. Didn't check it again after changing regulator.

Neal Clevenger

I take that back..I had checked it but not after it had gotten to operating temp.

Neal Clevenger

Fuel pressure holds at 38psi
