    Default hard start and shuts off after a few minutes

    got a 2000 gmc savana 6.5td hard to start it takes extremely long time, i changed crank shaft sensor and the map sensor because it pointed them out earlier, changed the fuel filter on it also, and its giving me these problems also when you try to drive after it finally starts it makes it hard to get speed and feels like its about to shut down again.

    I'd probably start with a couple of basic diagnostics: Pull codes from the computer in case there is anything useful in there, then put a fuel pressure gauge on it and see what the fuel system is doing.
