Crank, no start

Okay so I drove my truck to the gym, all fine. Left the gym the truck fired right up. Went to get food and I come out and it won't start. It cranks but just won't turn over. FICM good. Batts good. The truck is facing uphill and I think that had something to do with it because this happened once before. The last time about 2 weeks ago it was warm I had driven it a while and I parked somewhere facing downhill. Came out and it would just crank. That time it just worked itself out.

How many miles?

I read somewhere that if your low pressure oil pump is weak that it generates it's first symptoms when parked uphill. One dealer puts the truck on level ground, then jacks up the back and adds three qt oil as a test. If that gets it to start, where it wouldn't before, then there is an issue with the LPOP.

As long as you changed oil regularly, it is probably something else.

Wouldn't that simulate being parked downhill as opposed to uphill? If the back is jacked up, its going to be higher than the front.
When parked uphill, the front is higher than the back...Is this just more than one way to look at it or am I missing something? I think I may be having this problem with my truck.
