    Default fuel pump problems 2002 gmc 2500hd truck

    2002 sierra 2500 hd 4 by 4 with 130000 on motor. Truck seems to be running out of gas sometimes. Truck broke down the other day. Had it towed home. After tow truck left, I tryed starting my truck. After about the 5 time it started. Drove around for a little truck seem to run fine. Later that night truck broke down again. Just started acting like it was running out of gas, no power. Then stopped running again. I guess the question is... Is this the fuel pump going bad ? Can anyone help. Thanks

    I would start by checking your fuel pressure. You can rent a pressure gauge from autozone for free.
