Can you hear the fuel pump running? Check the fuel pressure.

Also, does the tach work when you try to crank it?

Could be Cam Position Sensor. Have you checked the fuel filters?

Your problem sounds like a CPS to me.

cps is only like 30 bucks now. No real way to test it besides maybe an OHM's meter - but you want a spare anyways so throw the new one in and put the old one in the glovebox incase it's not the problem.

You had your fuel filter lid off and your buddy turning the key and no fuel was being sprayed everywhere???? If that's the case - I'd definitely check the fuel pump. It's on the framerail right under the drivers side driver door. When you turn the truck to the on position you will hear it turn on, or you won't LOL!

ok so i pulled the line coming out of the fuel pump and turned the truck over and nothing was shooting out so i am being led to believe that fuel should have been pouring onto the ground if it wasnt a bad pump correct??

If the tach is working it is probably not the CPS. The fuel pump should work with the key on.
