truck is not starting, already checked fuel pump and fuel relay, still won't start. Could you send me a diagram of the fuel system please and direct me of what else to check to get the truck back running, thanks.

Before I do that, are you sure its the fuel system?

Have you tested ignition and fuel system?

You tried spraying starting fluid down the throttle body and cranking it? Does it fire up then die? Fire up and stay running?

Yes I've tried that, truck runs while feeding fuel. Seems as if the gas isn't getting to the injecter but has fuel at the fuel rail. Not showing any engine code.

Whats the fuel pressure at the rail, dont just push on it and if fuel comes out think its good, you need to know how much pressure.

If pressure is within specs I would be checkign pulse from the fuel injectors.
