Question about Cars & Trucks
Engine turns over till the battery dies. replaced the fuel filter in oct/nov and just replaced dist cap. i also checked the plugs and wires and fuel pump, all those are fine. what is the problem?
If you replaced the distributer cap, you may have put the ignition timing out. The distributer only needs to move a couple of degrees to cause the engine to fail to fire.

I had the same problem after it sitting over the winter. I changed the fuel filter and added water remover to my gas and let it sit over night for the water remover to work and the next day it ran fine.

Try removing the petrol cap on the tank, if the truck runs ok then you have a blockage in a hose somewhere.(vacuum created in fuel tank)

Since you now mention the check engine light, when you go to buy a manual and meter, have the codes scanned...most of the larger parts stores do that free. There is a list of codes in the manual. That will point you in the right direction. Ignore any O2 sensor codes to start with though as often any other malfunction can change mixture and set that code. Always deal with that code last.
