I was coming come from work. I stopped at a stop sign, engine shuts off. All it would do is spin over. Here's what I have done. Dropped the tank checked the fuel pump. Pump is priming. I changed the fuel filter. I took off the fuel line from the outlet of the fuel filter gas shoots out when pump primes. I have changed the fuel pressure regulator, STILL NOTHING. I have checked all the fuses, they're fine. I have been told it is either my computer or the coil pack. Both are not that cheap of a fix just be guessing. PLEASE HELP!
Do you

Ok it could a few different problems but first things first. Pull a plug wire off from the spark plug end and either put an old spark plug in the end or a philips screwdriver and put it near metal (like the valve cover) and crank it over and see if there is spark. Get back to me and we will take it from there.

I'm gonna try some starter fluid in the throttle body to see if it will try to start up. I guess!

First sorry I didn't get back to you for some reason it didn't repost so I could see that you had responded. With that said I need you to check for fuel. What you need to do is turn the key on then back off. Now on the fuel rail there is a valve remove the cap on that valve then take a small screwdriver and slightly depress the valve (do not look down on it as if there is fuel pressure it will come out with about 40 psi of pressure so keep you face clear) do you get any fuel out of it. It should have around 40 psi. Let me know what you find. If for some reason it don't repost IM me ok.

No problem. It took me awhile to get back to you, and for that I'm sorry. I checked the fuel at the rail like you said. I turned the key on, and the fuel pump primed. The only gas that came out ran out like it was coming out of a water hose, and not under pressure.

I don't know why this is being so much trouble to keep in touch sorry. Now with that said do you know what the fuel pressure is? It should be about 40psi. If you could get a fuel pressure tester and check it please so we can determine if it is the fuel pump.

Sorry it took so long my company had me on 12 hours and when I did have time to work on the truck it would rain!

I relieved the fuel pressure( what little there was) hooked up the gauge, and had no pressure. I turned the key on and off 3 more times like the gauge manual said. No pressure. I had replaced the fuel pressure regulator when I replaced the fuel filter. What do you want to do next?

If you have power to the pump then your fuel pump went bad, and needs to be replaced.

Ok got everything installed still wont start! I have fuel pressure now, but still wont start. I dont know exactly how much pressure, but it shot out of the port on the rail when I checked to see if I pressure. Could it be something in the fuel injection? I dont know.

Yes it could be injectors but not to common of a problem, so if you would unplug the mass air flow meter and see if it will start and idle. If it does then the mass air flow is bad. Let me know what you find ok.
