Re: engine quit running , fuel odor drivers side just...
My experience in this makes me think that you have a rusted fuel line, at the top of the tank. This is a common problem. I remove the tanks and replace the fuel tank fuel line/bracket assembly quite a bit.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sounds like great advice if you are paying them by the hour. You need spark, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression for the engine to run. One of the three is missing if it dies. If it does not start right back up, someone should be able to narrow down the list of possible causes. If it has spark to the plugs, it could be the fuel pump relay, or the pump. If it does not have spark, you need to find out why.
You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.
if has a fuel odor. it may be the fuel pressure regulator thats bad, it may be flooding out engine. a leaking regulator can cause hard starting, poor fuel economy, stalling, check engine light, gas smell under hood.
Found this online:
GM Technical Service Bulletin #77-63-06Ab states that: "stalling, hard starting, and hesitation are symptoms of a failing PMD (Pump Mounted Driver) module." These symptoms usually (but not always) set a code 35 or 36 in the 1994 - 1995 models, or a code 1216 in the 1996 - up models. Often when this problem is diagnosed at a dealership or repair shop, the customer is told that the injection pump needs to be replaced. But in most cases, the PMD module can simply be replaced for a fraction of the price.
The PMD module, (also referred to as the "Fuel Solonoid Driver") has been a major problem for Chevy / GMC 6.5L diesel owners since the introduction of the 6.5L electronically controlled DS4 fuel injection pump. It has been determined that heat is the primary cause of PMD failures. The PMD is mounted to the side of the fuel injection pump from the factory. But the injection pump does not provide adequate cooling to keep the PMD functional. Once the engine begins showing symptoms of hesitating, stalling and hard starting, the problem will only worsen with time. The problem only becomes more serious when considering the potential danger of your engine stalling in a situation such as pulling into heavy traffic or descending a steep hill and losing the use of power brakes and steering.
a bad crank sensor, or cam sensor will cause this--no start, hard time starting, shut off while driving. these will set a fault code. have engine scanned. auto zone will do this for free. p0340 is a bad cam sensor,
The same thing happened to my 99 C70. I had to replace coils, in the engine...has somewhat to do with the spark plug stuff. Cost me $600.
Also the electric seats go out, they are lame. I spent $150 fixing my driver side one time, then it went out again...and is stuck...but okay enough for me to drive, and I refuse to fix it again.
change plugs wires also .fill gas tank up put prestone or gum out fuel injector cleaner.drive car around several miles.give injector cleaner time to clean out injectors.wait until engine cool .change fuel filter.relief fuel pressure before changing fuel filter.
There are 3 major issues with the V6 Rodeo. The intake manifold gaskets leak. The drive by wire sensor on the gas pedal goes bad and makes it stall or run at just idle (light will come on). And your problem is the wiring harness to the motor. Get under while it is running (best to do on lift) grab the harness and shake it and pull it. Engine will probably die. Sometimes taking plug apart and using electrical contact cleaner on it will work, sometimes a stick of dynamite will cure all the issues with these. My son was almost killed three times in his 2001.
