sounds like HPOP. The fuel injectors in these trucks are fired off of high pressure oil from the High Pressure Oil Pump. There is a fitting inside the pump that can break, there is an updated part to cure the problem. Do you have any warranty left?

The update you speak of, only applies to 2005 to 2007 model years that use a different style high pressure oil pump than 2003 to 2004 model years.

By what you describe, it sounds like you've almost eliminated fuel pressure and engine cranking RPM as potential causes. To diagnose this properly, you're going to need a scan tool that can retrieve DTCs and monitor live data to see what's missing that prevents your vehicle from starting. There are many possible causes, too numerous to list here.

Same thing happened to my 06 and the dealership told me it was the high pressure oil line. It's in the shop right now getting worked on. I'm a little ticked because they had it for two days, told me it was fixed and when I went to pick it up, it wouldn't start again. The tech got it running after cranking it for about 30 seconds and then it stalled. Needless to say, they're still working on it.

I'm very lucky mine is still under warranty. It's been in the shop for four days now. I'm hoping they'll have it done by tomorrow.
