Fuel cutout, studdering, will not restart - ICP IPM? emergency, need truck asap
Was driving a couple days ago, decided to get into the pedal and the truck suddenly started to hesitate like it was starving for fuel. Tank was low, I quickly switched to the rear tank and after 10 seconds no difference. Truck stalled as soon as I lifted off the pedal and wouldn't restart. Multiple times cranking and nothing. I didn't notice any white smoke while cranking either. Decided to turn the key forward until the GP's went out (I have an led light installed on my dash wired directly to the GPR so I know they are definitely out) Waited 15 seconds after the led went off and gave it a shot of either. After a couple cranks the truck fired, had to keep pedaling the gas and brake to keep it running because it ran like it was starving.
Smoothed out above 2k anything below and it felt like it was down a few cylinders. I was 1/2 mile from home with no where to turn the truck around so I drove it back in reverse. I had to pedal the gas and brake to keep it running and get it up the driveway into the garage. Once I stopped it died, truck wouldn't fire, barely any smoke. I needed to replace the lift pump anyway. I did it last night and the truck refuses to fire. It took much longer than expected to fill the bowl also. Had I known anything about the IPR then I would have taken it out and serviced it while I had easier access. I did some reading today and discovered other possible problems like the IPR ICP, however I do not have any scan tools or real diagnostic equipment.
I need to get this truck back up asap, I need it everyday for work. I found this relating to the IPR New Page 0 I assume it is under the FRP, towards the front drivers side of the motor with the hinge type wire lock on the plug?? I assumed CPS from all the stories I've read also, but if that was true I assume I wouldn't have gotten the truck fired back up after its initial stall.
Brand new batteries, GP's and fuel filter - tach moves a few hundred RPM's while cranking also.
Thanks for the help, I've done some research and this is what I've narrowed it down to - any help and suggestions would be great.
