Yes it does sound like a fueling issue, but could also be vacuum sensor or airflow sensor.

If you haven't replaced the fuel filter in 3 years, then it may be about time you did. It is also one of the least expencive parts, and even a DIY job if access is possible, but you have to depressurise the fuel line before changing.

You can test the output of the fuel pump through the filter with a little care and a short length of pipe into a fuel can. It can as you say be a faulty fuel pump - but you will only know by testing it.

I have a 2006, and I was just advised that it is the EGR valve, which cost 624.24 to replace. It is not a warranty item. Do you have any knowlege if this is an ongoing problem.

SOURCE: Seems like a starter or battery problem-truck is slow to star.

Look at the voltage while the its cranking. If it drops to below 11 volts clean the terminals. If they are clean and it still drops to below 11v replace the starter. Get it tested first.. If the battery and terminals pass, then replace the starter. But to do this correct go to any mechanic or even an auto zone. They can test the battery, charging system and alternator in about 5 minutes with a special tool.

SOURCE: Car won't start after battery replacement.

You've possibly destroyed the ECM (computer) and maybe damaged other components. Take it to a qualified person locally for diagnosis.

Not starting which relay controls fuel pump

1994 ford Bronco was starting and running fine. My daughter drove it 3 miles to school that morning then a few hours later she went to start it and it would'nt start. The door chime and all the dome lights, lights on dash lite up as normal and when you turned the key to (start) position you could hear the fuel pump then it just would click and not turn over and start. Jumped the battery that didn't work. Had it towed home and tried a few more times that night to get it to start but no luck. Next afternoon went to check it out again and for the heck of it thought id try starting it. Would'nt ya know it..It STARTED right up? After checking Battery and solenoid..etc I thought it was the starter but now im not sure.

If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

I bought a new alternator for my 1990 oldsmobile and my car was running fine. A couple of months later i was coming home from work and my car had a hard time starting so when i got home i shut the car off...

You need to check if your alternator is charging. Buy a cheap volt meter from Harbor Freight for $3.
The battery should normally have about 12.3 volts.
When you crank the starter, it should drop down to about 10 volts. Once it starts, by jumping, it should go above 12.3, and as high as 13.5 when you rev the engine. If it never goes over 12.3, the batter will never get charges, and will eventually run down. But the alternator should have an automatic 12 month warranty. Take it back to them. And yes, running the windshield wipers will draw more current.

88 chevy no fuel

yes you can check it at the battery. but only for maybe 3 seconds or just long enough to hear it spin. there is only 1 fuel pump on that truck. if it is bad..... Please do not waste your time and effort by putting in the cheapest pump you can find. NAPA is the ONLY place that sells a pump that will last a long time. My buddy bought 1 from advance auto and had to replace it 6 months later. He went back to advance for the second one. 9 monthes later he had to replace it again.... THEN he went to NAPA and its been 3 years with no problems. Oh yeah it's a good idea to always replace the fuel filter at the sametime you put in a new pump. it's like 8 bucks.

1999 blazer wont start??

Your battery is either faulty or ther is a parasitic drain, have it checked out at parts house. With a good battery installed, spray some starter fluid into intake housing. If it starts, then dies, you have fuel pressure/delivery problems. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the key? Hope this helps.
