Yeah, but...we don't know you or your truck....and need some pretty basic info if we are even going to take a stab at it.. things like:
What year?
What engine?
Any modifications to your truck?

The first thing to check is the FICM. This is the aluminum box on the drivers side valve cover.
Directions for checking the voltage output can be found by clicking HERE.
You will need some basic hand tools (metric and torx #20), a multimeter and someone to turn the key for you while you check it.
Do you have a way to check for trouble codes? Is the "check engine" light lit up?

A few other basic things you can check is:
Remove the oil filter cap and filter. On the bottom of the housing you will see a valve. Using a long handled screwdriver, hold that valve down and have someone crank the engine over. The housing should fill with oil within a few seconds. Releasing the valve will drain the housing. If it does not fill within a few seconds, you have a low pressure oil pump/regulator problem.
The second thing to check is fuel delivery. Take the fuel filter housing cap and filter off. Have someone turn the key on and see if you get fuel flow. If not, you either have a bad Horizontal Fuel Conditioning Module (HFCM) or a plugged fuel filter within the HFCM. The HFCM is under the truck, right below the drivers seat on the frame rail.

Probably get one at an auto parts store for around 35 bucks or so.
