No fuel to the injectors


Have you checked your fuel filter? It could be clogged. Has the truck sat for a long period of time? Is the fuel pump GM? Does it have enough fuel pressure? Are you sure it's not ignition related? Possibly an ignition module shorting out after it gets hot.

I had the transmission fluid checked. It was ok- Apparently a malfunction in the electrical system. The battery has been recharged and I drove it yesterday. It seems to be ok. I plan to replace the battery soon, since it has not been replaced since I purchased the car in 2004. I drive it so infrquently I think the battery simply died. It has been driven approximately 25 miles since December 2008. I plan to drive it on the highway this summer.

748 dies 15 minutes into ride


mine did exactly the same, its draining the battery and dukes wont run if the battery is drained. the battery will recover itself when not running therefore will start, but will soon use what little power is left in the battery then die. all u need is a regulator rectifier, its a little black box under the seat and takes 2mins 2 change, should work, if not, get a new altinator. start the bike up, and connect a voltage reader from eack battery terminal, should read 13, mine was reading 10.5, changed the reg rec and all is good. give it a try, hopes this helps
