Truck wont start

Well yesterday I go to crank her up and its a no go. It cranks but wont fully turn over.

Had to get towed to the dealership...of course now its working fine and has been all day for them.

Said the fuel filters are fine, even though they havent ever been replaced and I'm up to 50k miles.

What do you guys think about all this? Also, should I look into changing these filters? The dealer wants $120-something a piece for them

Filters should be done every 15k regardless....BUT

Let me guess...it wouldnt start...the motor was hot...shut off for a little while...then wouldnt start. After it cooled off, started right up!!

You more than likely have a leak in your high pressure oil system. There is a quick connect that fails at the high pressure oil pump, and also the D rings on the top of the injectors fail......either can cause a no start only after a hot soak....when the oil is thinnest and can pass by the leak easier. Usually the truck runs completely normal, just wont start hot.

Learn something new every day--I had no idea about the filters. I'm a diesel newbie still.

If you mean the temperature outside, it was hot. As for the truck, it hadnt been run all day so the motor was still cooled off.

Also, would that be a warranty repair being with the oil system? I'm still at 50k miles on the 06.

Thanks Marc, I sure appreciate the help

I just went through the same thing and it was a warranty fix but had to pay a $100.00 deductible. It was an oil pump and they fixed it but two weeks later(now) it's happenning again. the truck is back at the dealership. she will start, then won't start, then will start. hot, cold either way sometimes she'll start hot and sometimes won't. cold, sometimes she'll start sometimes not. Very strange.
