do you have any access to a code reader to check for codes?? Sounds like a cam sensor where the tach isnt registering, but i would like to try to verify it with a code if possible.

no access today. i'm at work at the fire station. when the cam sensor went out before, it would re=start for a number of times until i got it re-placed so i didn't think it would be the problem this time.

cam sensors go many different ways. Sometimes they just go completely, other times the truck will fire right back up, and other times it will fire back up, but only after sittting a while. Problem is, like i said above, i dont want to completely condemn it without at least trying to get something else to prove my hunch right. The tach thing isnt a fullproof test, but it is usually a good indication.

if you watch, your service engine soon light is always on any time the key is on and the engine isnt running, so since you cant get it started, you cant use the light to verify if there is a code or not...
