Sometimes it'll start right up but most times it'll just turn over and turn over. As soon as i go to crank it again right after it just turned over, it'll start right up. Almost like you had to prime it like you have to do to diesel

Truck stopped in driveway not to go again. Towed to dealership and fuel pump is culprit.
