Try pumping the primer pump near the fuel filter, mine did the same thing once
and this worked for me. I havn't had a problem since.



It took about 8 to 10 pumps to start!

that doesn't help. this only happens when theres more than 3/4 tank of fuel but when its blow that it does start ok


but not like it should 5-15 seconds to start now all this happens when the truck is warm not when its cold it starts ok when its cold most of the time

what color smoke, and was this after you picked up the truck.again it sounds like they where guessing on what injector to replace. what work was done?did they drain the oil and refill it? i had one that i replaced the leaky injector and it took about 45 min of run time to clear all the furl out of the exhaust...

IIRC aren't the Dmax's cylinders numbered differently than other GM engines? Something like the odd number cylinders are on the other side?
