    Do you think the battery is dead, does the engine try to turn over/crank? or does it crank and not start?

You here the fuel pump running, but do you have 35 to 42 psi to the rail, if not, replace inline fuel filter and fuel pump and pump pickup filter. Most cars have to have a set fuel pressure to open the injectors before it will run.

Car wont start at times

When this happens check the fuel pressure, this is typical of a failing fuel pump. The pump is located in the fuel tank. A quick way to check this is to buy a can of spray starting fluid (buy it at a auto parts store), when it fails to start spray the fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts right up the pump is likely the problem. I assume that the engine cranks over and just will not fire up. If it no that then let me know and I can give you other possible causes.

Wont start,not getting fuel,where is fuel pump and filter on this car?

Hello dfarr69, the fuel pump is located in the gas tank. To find out if it's working have someone turn the key to the on position, don't turn to start, just turn to on position. have someone who has very good hearing stand back by the gas tank, whichever side it's on, and listen very closely. Fuel pumps have a small motor and if you're listening for it you can usually hear the pump kick on.

The fuel filters are generally about midway between the front and rear tires, usually on the driver's side, and their shaped like a small beer can.

Good luck my friend!

Wont start .but when it does it runs fine

you should be able to hear your fuel pump run like a zingggg or a errrrrrrrr noise get someone to cycle the key to the run then off position while you get close to the fuel tank if you hear either of those sounds the pump is running. if you wanted to go a step further i do believer there is a valve on the fuel rail that looks like a tire valve and if you can get a presure guage on it it should read 45 -50 psi i do believer but as long as you are getting some pressure your truck should idle. check the fuel filter too .
