My truck will not start occasionally-it will crank, but not start. It sounds like it is out of gas, just to give you an idea of what it sounds like. I have taken it in twice to Firestone to have the electrical system checked out, and today they still ca not find anything wrong with the truck. They ran the electrical system check three times just to be sure. The battery, alternator, starter are all included in the test, FYI. What else could be causing this? I suggested a bad fuel pump, but they said there is not a way to test for that. The dealership said the same thing. I suggested spark plugs, and Firestone did not think that would be the cause. I mentioned that the gas tank is 1/4 full when it happens (from when I have paid attention-not 100% sure on this) and they suggested that the gauge is broken and the tank is really on empty and that's why it happens. To test, I filled up my gas tank, and the amount it took to fill up was 12 gallons on a 16 gallon tank (that was approximately 1/4 full) so it checks out and the gauge is not the problem. Any suggestions? Right now the suggestion is to wait it out for more symptoms to appear or the car to not start at all so that the solution will be more obvious. Thanks for any tips.
have the same problem?
