First, determine if the fuel pump is running (under the truck, below the drivers seat, on the inside of the frame rail, the size of a soda can). You should be able to hear it running or feel it with your hand. For safety reasons, the pump will only run for @ 15sec after the key is turned to the ON position (you can just go Off & On again to restart).

Next, if it's Not running check the "Inertia Switch" (pass kick panel) to see if it's tripped or come unplugged. Also look in the fuse box for a blown fuse.

Then, if it IS running how much fuel do you have in the tank? At @ 1/4 tank there is a common failure of the pick up that might cause you to suck air. Also you could have a bad sending unit and are actually empty...

Also, do you get a WTS light when you first roll-on the key?

Not sure what the wts light is but I had just put 15 gls in the truck.It did not act like it ran out of fuel it acted light it was shut off.I will check for noise or vib from fuel pump in the morning.I have had the truck since it was new and never had a fuel problem other than false reading on some angles.Oh one other thing I thought maybe it was a low oil shut off since it was 3 quarts low.Thanks so much for the help.I just cant afford to pay anyone right now I am a Cement Mason for my local 518 and laid off due to winter freeze here in the Midwest
