I had the same problem! My gas gauge showed that I had fuel and every time I started the vehicle it would try to turn over and would not. I thus had plenty of electric power and thus the stater and solenoid were fine!

At first the logical inference would be this: The fuel is NOT getting to the combustion chamber so it is likely a fuel pump or the fuel pump solenoid that is out! Or a fuse for the fuel pump!

BUT before you try to change these out (they are in the gas tank) look to see if you have an "Old Man Package".
It is a small toggle switch usually located on the inside of the cab in the front passenger side of the vehicle on the side of the center console or under the dash. It is designed to, when theft is attempted, to protect the vehicle from theft. If accidentally hit by a knee or something it can activate that system and the truck will start for a second and then die.
Hit that switch over and try to start your truck then. That very well many be your problem as it was mine and took me forever to find the solution!
Good Luck !!!

Start up and die

If it will eventually start and run, I would check the fuel pressure at startup. The fuel pump relay provides power to the pump for 3 or 4 seconds and if the computer does not "see" oil pressure it will not continue to power the pump. That is to prevent a fire in a wreck.

Changed the oil and plug wires now when it gets warm it starts to sputter and wants to die. it eventually dies. it starts back up but continually dies til the destination.

Change your fuel filter. If that doesn't help, have your fuel pressure checked. Sounds like a fuel problem, but may be elsewhere. I would start with the fuel filter.

Will start then die.

if it starts runs and dies instantly, the fuel pump could be the culprit, its getting the signal to sqirt fuel to start but then no voltage to continue pressure.. check fuel pump and also worse case senerio is the ECU (main computer could be bad)
