2002 Duramax won't start
Hi all, I'm having an issue. I parked my truck for about 3 days and went to start it up this morning to go to work. Everything seemed fine but she ran for about 2 seconds and shut off. Now it just cranks and no fire. I'm assuming the glow plugs are working as the indicator shuts off the wait to start.
I am left with it possibly (or likely) a fuel issue. When I get home I will try to bleed the filter and prime it and see what happens. I hooked up my programmer to it and it isn't giving me any DTC's. I do have about an 1/8 of a tank, but it is on level ground. My truck is a 2002. I'm at a loss as it was running great when I parked it. Any help would be appreciated. There are no leaks of any fluid underneath it.

Now I can tow the bike on the bad day!

It does sound like a fuel issue-- You are correct in try to prime it and if it starts and runs ok. It could be a loose bleeder screw, WIF sensor leak, loose filter, or dry O-Rings in the primer pump. Any of these will cause the problem you are describing.
