Verify you have good strong spark at the plugs. Also you want to check the fuel pressure with a gauge. If it's within specs and you have good spark, it could be flooded. Once in a while these trucks will flood the plugs if the secondary ignition has not been replaced in a while. Try starting the truck with the throttle wide open (clear flood mode) and see if it fires. If not, look at the plugs and replace as needed.

well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

Cranks, won't start strong smell of gas 5.9


Sounds flooded. Let it sit awhile and when you go to start it hold pedal to the floor. You might also have vehicle nearby for jump start, cranking flooded engine can wear on battery
