So I started the truck up this morning took it for a 20 minute drive ran good. Tried to start it an hour later engine cranked but it didnt fire off. I got the battery tested it was perfect. Went to get the alternator checked napa and advanced could not test the alternator. Went to the dealer told him what happened he thinks it is the throttle body. He said it is common on that truck. Ialso told him when you turn the ignition to start it you can let go of the key and the engine will still try to start he told me that it is fine that it is suppose to do that. I am going to shoot ether in it and see if it fires if it does does that mean the throttle body is bad. I also called another dealer they think it is that or the pcm or bcm. I have already experienced this with my 1992 cadillac devillle not a fun job. The one dealer is charging 650 to install it and the other is charging 500. The 500 dollar one seems like he knows what he is talking about. If I wanted to put it in how hard is it to do. Thanks for your help.
