if it cranks but will not turn over?? it it cranks then the motor is turning over..
do you have fuel pressure? how do you know the fuel pump is on?
if you have spark then it is fuel related

I would do a fuel pressure test also. you should be about 40, you also can pull the vacuum line of the fuel pressure regulator and see if here is gas in it

Listen to the fuel pump when the truck is running. If it's making a whinning sound, it's going or gone bad. They should be fairly quiet, not making a (humming) high pitch sound. Had a very similar problem on a Mustang in the past.

on the fuel rail there is a sheridor valve you can press that just like taking air out of a tire, that will tell you if you have fuel pressure

I will be glad to help but you need to try and do what we ask of you and answer the questions the best you can. Please update your signature/profile so it is like mine. Buy a haynes manual if you can. If you don't know what a part looks like go to rockauto.com.
First thing to do is pull the vacuum line off of the fuel pressure regulator. It should be on the fuel rail. There should not be gas in it. If there is gas that means the rubber inside is bad. Next you want to do a fuel pressure test. You can get a tester at harbor freight for $20. Or acron makes a good one for $50 or you can borrow it from a parts store. You hook the tester up to the shrader valve on the fuel rail. You are looking forthe numbers I posted. Koeo=key on engine off, etc. Search is your friend DID YOU CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER YOURSELF OR DID SOMEOME ELSE DO IT?

Mdub4life you should start your own thread in the appropriate engine format. PM me when you do that!
