Truck died while idling...won't start

Sitting in the driveway this morning. Cranked right up. About a minute later just died...no sputter or nothing...just died. Turns over good...will not crank. No codes on the reader either.

Any suggestions? Will have to tackle this evening.

Pump the primer bulb on the filter housing to see if it is hard. Have you changed the fuel filter lately?

Have not changed fuel filter lately. It has about 5K miles on it.
Will check primer bulb, bleeder, and filter first.

Also make sure the water in fuel plastic nut thing beneath the fuel filter is tight...

Sounds like you are loosing prime. Check the fuel filter and WIF sensor. If they are not tight then it will die. Also, can you pump the primer bulb and it gets hard?

The WIF nut was the problem. It had started to back-off...plastic nut on a plastic filter.
Primer bulb worked good after.

Took a few more revolutions to crank this morning, but cranked anyway.
Will keep a close eye the next few days.

Thanks for the help everyone.
