    Default intermittant starting problem and occasionally stalling HELP!

    Hey guys,

    my 1997 k1500 with the 6.5L TD is having an issue. For some reason last thursday It wouldn't start. tried everything I could to figure it out, bled the line, checked for air, checked fuel pump everything.

    Lots of fuel getting to top of the motor. I took it to my mechanic, he changed the PMD controller, now he thinks its the optical sensor... I can't afford to keep dumping money into expensive parts here... any suggestions? I just blew 2100 on the brakes last week.

    thanks in advance.

    1993 K1500 Suburban 350TBI, 378,486KMS on frame, 49,000KMS on Drivetrain. Lots of mods, built for haulin trailers and haulin @$$ :)

    2000 K2500 Yukon XL 6.0L Vortec 252000KMS custom CAI, and exhaust...but not done yet.

    Did you check the glowplugs? Those engines won't start without a working glowplug system with good glowplugs...
