Fuel Pump

So me and the wifey are goin to her school so she can fill out some Finanicial aid papers. We leave the house and get to the first stop sign and the truck starts chuggin like its running out fuel, so I step on it and try to get it to clear up and then it justs dies like it ranout of fuel. I tried cranking it to no avail. Pulled the fuel filter and no fuel in the fuel bowl. Climbed underneath the truck while the ole' lady turned the key and no sound was coming from the fuel pump. Call roadside service and over an hour and half later the roll-back finally showed up. Take it to the dealer and says they dont have very many diesel techs so it may take a while. The only reason its at the dealership is because I have an extended warranty and they will cover it and all I have to pay is the $50 deductible. So short story longer I have no truck for a few days

You would think that it would run if the pump is working. I don't know Maybe a fuse

With an empty fuel bowl and assuming the dealer with limited diesel techs actually knows that the fuel pump is working ( a dry fuel pump should sound like a swarm of bees coming at you ), my thoughts would be plugged intake screen and / or mixer screens. The tank would need to be dropped and the pickup assembly inspected. If the screens are plugged, the fuel pump should also be removed and have the intake of the pump cleaned.

I had no swarm of bees coming at me. I got under the truck and put my ear to the fuel pump and had the old lady turn the key and nothing. When the servise advisor called me I thought it was strange that he said it was working.

Even if the screens are plugged. there should still be noise coming from the pump, I would think. Sounds like the pump is bad.

I'm thinking you have some poo in your tank and it is goofing up your pump. My pump is LOUD and ON while I'm waiting for the Wait to Start light to go off. I think your dealer techs are a bunch of poo-poo heads. (At least a lot of 'em are!) It blows me away that the dealer will try to work on a diesel w/out a Diesel Tech on hand. Goobers!

I got my truck back back and guess what???? Fuel pump just like I said. I asked the Service advisor about it and he said that it was running electricly but not physically. Whatever dude. Only reason I took it there is cus my extended warranty only covers 50$ and Im a cheap bastard. And would you believe they charged 3 hours to change out the fuel pump. Oh well at least the extended warranty covered most of it.

At least it's better than mine. Mine died Sunday and today they called me in and showed me that the pump shaft and rod from the O-ring down fell into the engine! He showed me the pump and it was just broken off right there, the housing and rod.

Now, I have to drop the pan to find it.
