Question about Cars & Trucks
Truck won't start, drove and when parked up for night, would not start in morning. Had technician out and diagnostics said no fuel getting to engine. Is this a fuel pump issue, filter or under the bonnet
I do not know what model of truck you do have ,but I will give you an advise,most probably close to your problem. lift the bonnet and check the fuel filter if is the one with a small pump on top of it.If so just remove the hose leaving the filter to fuel pump and start pumping the filter top to see whether fuel is coming out. If yes means that the problem you face is not the feeding to pump. To go for more investigation,go by the injectors and just loose one of the injectors top pipe nut and ask somebody to give a crank start and watch if fuel comes out from the top nut of the injector.If no fuel comes out from there but fuel goes to the feeding fuel pump,just go by the fuel pump and there is a solenoid which is for the fuel cut-off and surely stop working not allowing fuel to get in the fuel pump. Renew it and the problem solved. ( if it is this type of engine.)

following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any
electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.
The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.
