ive been trying to start it all day, 20 min after i changed the pump i started, charger on the batterys block heater plugged in thought the oil might be to thick to fire injectors, crank for 15 sec leave for 1/2 hour, etc all day, didn't see anything left unplugged. i'll look again in the light of tommarrow

no way to read codes. batterys fully charge with charger on. i started with low fuel pressure, cleaned the screen it was full of algae, now has fuel pressure, no sure how much, i'm getting fuel through the system and back to the pump at the banjo fitting, hpop is full and i have oil going into the heads, seems like the inj aren't firing, all conections are plugged in, will crank all day but won't fire and still no smoke from the tailpipe, new cps, i even hit it with either ( i know bad but i was pissed off at it) would sputter then nuthin. is there a was to check the signal going to the inj without a scanner? all this the fuel pump was bad was getting no fuel at all now it is, but its been sitting since august.

you said it was 20 degrees outside....

what fuel is in it......its very possible the fuel is bad and or gelled. You may need to drop and clean the tank and blow the fuel lines out....
