No start after fuel line / PCM replacement
Truck in sig
Replaced lines off fuel bowl 6 months ago. In the process of doing so, some worn insulation caused a short at the connector on the back side of the HPOP which, in turn, shorted out and shot my PCM. 6 months later I have a new PCM and harness for the HPOP connector. Started up like a champion and was quickly reminded that I still had a fuel leak. Bummer. Replaced the return line from the FPR to the driver side head.
Here's where it gets sticky.
A couple days before I got the line replaced the truck would start up fine and run a little rough, but would SPRAY fuel from the ruptured return line. I started the truck in an attempt to make room behind me for other cars. It started up fine, but ran rough for about 5 seconds. Immediately began running violently rough then died. Both of my tanks were significantly low (from the leak) so it is possible that I ran it dry.
Now it won't start. I can smell what I think is a little incomplete combustion and I haven't seen any white smoke from the tail pipe so I think I'm starving for fuel. I've got a bunch of really great guys helping me out here on the ORG, and I haven't had the time to run all the tests they have suggested. I still need to put a diesel soaked rag around my filter and see if I can fire it up. Some of the guys are starting to think IPR or HPOP.
If anybody has any thoughts I'd love to hear them. I'm in a bad way and starting to feel in over my head. Thanks for any help.
