These trucks are picked when it comes to fuel pressure. Unless you have it actually tested you can't rule it out. Have your check engine light read just so maybe it gives you an area to look in because simply not starting could be anything. what engine do you have?

When the injector fail, more specifically the fuel pressure regulator fail it dumps Fuel and floods the engine. Starting fluid would still yield a no start condition

There is no fuel pressure regulator. On unless it builting to top intake where the fuel lines go in but i am sure there isnt any

You have to take the black plastic upper intake off to see it. It's on the back of the Spider injector. Once again you can't see it, it's under the upper intake
