SOURCE: not gitting fuel from the gas tank to the fuel

this is a mechanical fuel pump that works off cam lobe, check fuel line from pump all the way to tank, notice wet or rusted line, split rubber lines that connect metal lines to pump and top of tank. disconnect fuel line at pump (suction) side. put a rubber hose on the suction side and clamp, install other end in a clear container with gasoline in it. attemp to start vehicle if it pumps fuel and starts then your problem is the line from the tank to the pump, if it doesn't pump it is the diaphram in the pump. If you suspect the pump and remove it inspect what drives it as well at this time. I believe it is pump or the supply line

Go back to basics and do a complete fuel system and compression test, if it hasn't had a full tune-up in a while you may consider that also.

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working

There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options
