    Crew driving down the road at 30mph and the engine just stopped running. It will turn over fine but will not start. No engine lights or other lights are on. We pushed it into a parking lot for the night. My plan was to to replace all the relays one at a time(only two kinds of those), Then maybe go thru the fuses. Is there any other thing to do before we have it towed? It has 50K miles on it and we put more fuel in even though it said it had a half tank. It is $200 in this town for a tow...may drag it home. If there any problem with doing that...like to transmission?

    Loss of fuel rail pressure may not set off a code. Does it have a chip? Too much pressure could have popped the relief. Also could be a leaky injector or failed cp3 injection pump. Or faulty fuel gauge...

    Is the relief something that can be reset out on th eroad? We added fuel in case gauge was faulty. We didnt add a chip so do they come with one? Where is that injection pump? My son went back to the truck this am and ground on it while pumping the throttle and eventually it started. Unfortunately the toll truck had arrived so we took it in to chev. We forgot that it had a five year warranty.

    why not just change the fuel filter and start there , thats normally the first place to start if it wont start, when was the last time it was changed?

    Let us know what wound up being wrong. The fact that it eventually started is good - you aren't dealing with catastrophic failure of your injection pump or injectors most likely.

    Any update? Does your insurance not cover towing? Seeing as how its a newer truck, you prolly have full coverage and towing is usually included. Had to get roadside service on my dodge and had a check 5 days later.
