im not quite convinced it is the injector harness as it starts up and runs fine after it stalls out, i thought if the harness went it wouldnt run at all? iv been abel to drive it home both time it has stalled after letting it set for a few and holding the throlttle wide open, im going to change the filter and look into the hpop res to see if it is arriated like a buddy had suggested and go from here. keep the tips coming

We had several issues with the filter, sputtering and chugging starts like you mentioned. Replaced, and fixed.

go back to your "I don't know jack shit about diesels" cave.

OP, check the wiring harness for abrasions where the harness comes up the side of the block.

Is the lift pump keeping the fuel filter housing fill during and post cranking? I read the whole thread earlier but forgot.

Other than those issues, it could be a IDM crapping out, or a broken wire under the valve cover. I know a lot of these have already been stated, just double checking.

u need to get ur hand on OR take it to someone that has a nice OBD 2 diag scanner..... if u take it to some one who knows these HEUI engines then they can tell you instantly where to start just by observing the PID's. These engines need specific things to run that u can read off these scanners. And u can do a test for almost every vital component on this truck with the activation mode. Then maybe do the work your self. There are many things that this could be, so this would be the fastest way.

ok so a long winded summary of whats gong on so far.. i changed the filter,tensioner and 1 idler the other day, drove fine on the front tank great throttle response ect, today i took it for a drive on teh rear tank got about 3/4 mile down the road it started acting up wanting to die spitting sputtering missingect, i throw it in neutral and flip to the front tank and fether the throttle a bit and it picks its self back up and runs great. so i figure id try it again went around the block on the rear tank again and same resalt, bout 3/4s the way around about the time i figure the front tank fuel has cycled through it starts spitting and sputtering ect, i go through the same process as befoer of fliping to the front tank and feathering the throttle same resalt it picks itself up and runs great the rest of my lil test drive. so my thought is the rear tank which was full when i bought and had sat for who knows how long has bad fuel in it and needs to be syphened (sp) out and fresh fuel put in. any one agree disagree with this theory? and after thinking back i believe the truck was on the rear tank the last two times this happend prior to me asking all these ?s.

thanks drew

Judging by your explination, the rear tank is full of something. Water etc. Drain it, and refill it with fresh fuel and see what happens from there.

From the symptoms you gave I would have to second this . There is a screen that can become plugged with all kinds of crap. Keep us posted for further diagnosis .

well havnt tested completley diagnosted it yet but when i went to syphon the rear tank i got nothing and only about a 1/4inch of the syphon hose was wet. tapped on the tank with a screw driver is sounded pritty damn empty.. so its possible the gauge doesn't work and it quit on the rear tank and being a new truck i jump to the worst case that somthing was wrong with it after spending the money on it that i did. so ignorance/stupidity might have prevailed and 1 upd me this time around, on a side note if this is the case i have learned alot about this truck already after replacing what i have and investigating everything that has been mentioned, but i will report back on my findings when pay day come around as of now im just driving my chevy thanks again for all the tips

ok im an idiot the rear tank was empty filled it and ran around town on the rear tank then later that night. so i think thats solved now i have another issue it cuts in and out and misses horribly both on the front and rear tank and will clear itself out if feathering the throttle long enough so im thiking i have a bad injector harness any other thought, it shakes the truck and has no power/throtle response when shaking and acting up but will clear itself up and run then do it again a few moments later
