Thumbs down Broke down......again

well my trucks broke down for the 2nd time in 2 weeks. its doing the same thing but i know its not gelled up. it was get tin low on fuel, low fuel light turned on as i turned into gas station. turned it off. put 50 bucks in fuel in the tank. then it wouldnt start. so now its going to the dealership soon and hopefully i can get a loaner of some type or somethin to drive while its in there. i want this whole damn truck went through. my mom said shes gonna help me with maintenance bills. im just tired of this thing being more unreliable than my old dodge with shot rings and valves. what happened to 7.reliability. iye yiye yiye. just my venting again.

You ought to pick up yourself automotive engenuity! It is a great program for your laptop to help diagnose problems. It is about 320 bucks or so... But well worth it for times like this. Cheapest place I have found it is Riffraff Diesel...

any idea what your fuel pressure is? i wonder about the pump being worn out, if that sthe case i believe a stock replacemtn is around $300, you can find them for less though.
