Started, idled, and died

I need some help. It's about 12 degrees out right now. Started my truck up this morning, had it plugged in last night, and it started just fine. It was idling for about 10 minutes, the EBPV came on for high idle, and then just died. Now it won't start back up. I have my fuel treated with the white Diesel Kleen, checked the fuel bowl and it was full, unplugged the batteries for a few minutes, and nothing. The starter turns over just fine, but it just won't start. The only weird thing I noticed is now the "Wait to Start" light on the dash does not come on when I turn the key. I just put a new Stancor GPR in it a few weeks ago. Help!

first thing you need to do is pull the # 22 maxi fuse under the hood and look to see if its blown. Thats the fuel bowl heater fuse and its also connected to the PCM. sounds like why your wait to start light aint comin on anymore. Thats where you need to start.

Well, I unplugged the fuel bowl heater connection, replaced the #30 mini fuse under the dash with a 30amp (it was blown), and my truck started right up. Thanks for the help on this.

I drove to the grocery store and smelled diesel, so I popped the hood and I had fuel spraying all over the place. I guess I didn't tighten the fuel bowl cover all the way down! Does somebody make a fuel bowl cover that I can put a 1/2" drive or some sort of tool on? I've just been using some channel pliers that work ok, but I wish I could use a better tool.

On my 2000 that's how you tighten down the fuel filter. I also use a Baldwin filter so that might be it.

Any of the fuel bowls for the 2000-2003 have the socket adapter on them and they will fit your rig. Same filter as well. Just look it up at autozone or where ever you buy your filters.

Not 100% sure yet.
As of this morning it is still torn apart. They are trying to clean up that EDT valve in the turbo that was sticking - It was holding up the exhaust back pressure and causing it to shut down. We are hoping this will work without needing a new turbo - or rebuild...

My other electrical starting problems seem to be solved with changing the fuse box last week becasue it was corroded - due to a bad seal - I guess it is common in this year of pick up-

Any other ideas? The more info the better- Im not trying to thread jack
