    so when i try and turn over my starter it cranks for a while and takes a long time to start, if the truck has been running a while and i turn it off to run in the store or something, it starts fine if i get back in it. So im just trying to make sure if it is the fuel pump before i replace it. If you need more info let me know. Thank you.

    sounds like my problem. usually if you cycle the key to the 'on' position 3-4 times without actually cranking the engine (so the fuel pump kicks on to prime the system) it'll start up first time you crank it.

    on mine, the little one way valve that keeps pressure in the line when you prime the pump went bad, hence needing to prime multiple times. new pump fixed it.
