same as everyone else. Fuel pump went out. Truck started acting weird... lights flashing on and off in the interior; door locking and unlocking; alarm not setting... not sure how that is related to fuel pump. But, had it towed to dealership and they replaced the fuel pump. That fixed the problem.

My truck would not take the gas while driving down the street then cut off. After sitting for 15 minutes or so it would crank back up and drive a little while longer then repeat it all over again. I had to replace the fuel pump.

Engine stalled and didn't restart.
Under a 1/4 tank of gas its hard to start
Fuel pump failed right after filling up with gas. Ran rough, then backfired and wouldnt start. Found a replacement, mechanic, and replaced the pump in the parking lot.
fuel pump continued to lose prime so DROPPED THE TANK, and replaced the fuel pump, filter, and had the fuel injectors cleaned and the regulator replaced while there.
