    I tried this morning and before I turned the key to START I knew it was in vain. At the ON position I realized that I was not hearing the fuel pump. Going to call soon to have it towed and repaired. Just seems so odd that I drove home, shut it off and then nothing.

    if you chang the pump REPLACE the connector the connector going bad is what causes the pumps to go bad on all chevy trucks and suvs (ase cetified tech fo 15 yrs) seen it way to many times and a delco pump is worth the extra money

    Opps, sorry, I forgot to update. The day that U was going to have it towed I called a local shop. The mans at the other end said that it is likely the fuel pump. He did say that in order to try and save the tow cost to turn the key to on and see if the pump will kick in. I tried this and no success. Then I though "relay". I opened the hood, pulled the relay out. The contacts on the relay and socket looked clean. I plugged the relay back in the socket and attempted to start.....it started right up and has been running since. Hmmmmm...

    On a side note I spoke with a coworker that said that he has replaced a few of these for himself and others. He said not to drop the fuel tank. Rather unbolt the bed, disconnect the harness, and raise/remove the bed. He said that it is much easier than dropping the fuel tank.
