MY TRUCK IS STUCK AT WORK!!!!

Ok guys I will try to make this detailed and short.

My truck usually starts and runs fine. Every once in a while it will stutter at stop lights but takes off fine (both stock and with programs) Friday I came home from work and it ran fine spent about an hour doing stuff at the house then went out to start my truck. Well it will crank over and sounds like it wants to start but wont. later that night I come home from being out and figure I will try to start it and boom it starts right up. The next day I put probably 100 or so mines on it both taking it easy and getting on it both stock and programmed and stopped and started it about 10 times. sunday it worked fine and now monday I'm stuck at work cause it wont start again of all places

I get oil pressure (oil level is fine) but when cranking the rpm's dont move (CPS maybe?) no water in fuel light fuel is fine. I talked to Marc and he thinks it's something electrical. I think it is a sensor but I dont know where to look. Its not under warranty and I really dont want to go to the dealership to get it tested (cant afford to). Can anybody give me some more insight or some tests to run or look at?

thanks
Michael

Not real sure bud. I know the injection control pressure sensors are prone to goign out on them. They can cause a surging at a light or going down the road. Not sure if it would make the truck stutter though. Sounds kinda like a strange problem. Well heres a bump for ya! Good luck.

Are you leaking any oil in the back of your engine by chance? I only ask cause i think the ICP sensor will leak oil when they are going out too. You might want to check that one.
