When the weather is wet (snow or rain) my truck will crank, but not start. I have fuel, fuel pressure, and spark. I did have check engine messages that I have two bad O2 sensors. Could this be the problem? If so, any direction on how to put them in?

It smells like it is flooded, too much fuel.
Thanks,
Dan

Hi, thanks for the donation. If the 02 sensors are the problem, the code should point, which 02. As far as removing the sensor, it is straight forward. Take the electrical connector loose, unscrew the old sensor, screw the new one in, reconnect connector. I'd also want to use a fuel pressure gage on the fuel system, check for proper pressure and that it doesn't drop like a rock, when everything is turned off.

Thank you, that helps out a lot.
Can the O2 sensor cause my problem though? I have never heard of an O2 sensor causing a crank no start problem.
I don't want to replace them and that not be the main problem, thay cost 85.00 a pieces times 4.

Thanks again,
Dan

I don't think they should stop it from starting. Some of the national brand autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage, if you don't have one.
