need more info

what year is your truck and the basics.... any smoke? does it start?

I am guessing at this, but fuel bowl heating element is starting to go out...... unplug it, replace 30 amp mini fuse under dash and see if that helps.

Also, have you checked the GPR, GP's? Any codes if you have a scanner.....

hope that helps....

Looking for a FORD.
