The truck started stalling out, and now won't start. Smells like it's flooding. We used an Autozone tester, but the check engine light isn't coming on now. So, nothings wrong? Took the oxygen sensor up, it checks ok. Are there 2? They say one. We are checking plugs and wires, but it's a gas issue
The little black box off the fuel lines, is that the issue? It's pouring gas out on the ground, looks like an air filter running to gas lines.

Check the fuel pressure regulator you see fuel when you remove the vacuum hose-its gone, also do a fuel pressure check. TBI look at the injector/s spray pattern-should be a conical shape. Also check the return line for restriction. An oxygen sensor will not cause the engine not to start all it is -is a snitcher telling the computer how much oxygen left in the exhaust to adjust fuel demand in the closed loop mode.
