Most likely your fuel pump is about to go out. When the truck wont start listen around the fuel tank and see if you hear the fuel pump running ( will sound like a small electric motor). If you do not hear it hit the bottom of the tank with your hand and see if it starts running. These go out a lot. FYI If you have to change it yourself it is easier to pick up the bed instead of dropping the fuel tank. Hope this helps.

    that was good info, but my problem is I have a new fuel, pump.but the problem did not go away, it seems that the pressure must some how bleed off. it can set for a month it will start on the first time, but drive it then it takes two times or until the pump builds up pressure. also the gauges will come on when the key is off
