SOURCE: my 98 gmc 6.5 diesel runs good then dies and won't start back.

there is a injector driver module relocation kit with a heat sink to mount it to because the module in the orgional location the module would overheat. also check the glow plugs the quick easy way to do this without removing them is to unplug all the glow plugs then hook a jumper wire up to battery positive and and touch it to each glow plug there should be a spark and if there isn't then the glow plug is bad.

SOURCE: My 1999 GMC Suburban is hard to start first thing

Yup!
The fuel pressure valve is stuck open and drains the fuel (via gravity) back to the tank.
Check the fuel pressure regulator / replace.

You might want to put a bottle of "complete fuel system" cleaner ($8 AutoZone) in the gas (not diesel) tank, next fill-up. It may do the trick in a couple of days.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply! I'll add the fuel system cleaner tonight and check the pressure regulator this weekend. Thanks again."

IT USED TO START BY JUST TURNING THE KEY, NOW I HAVE TO TAP THE ACCELERATOR OR IT DIES OUT.


Sounds like you may have a fuel problem. Also, check your fuses. Might be your fuel filter or your fuel pump.
