Truck wont start.

(2006 GMC Canyon)
in Lemon Grove, CA on March 21, 2011
My truck wont start at all. The check engine light isnt on or it doesnt tell me it needs service or anything and everything is pretty normal, battery, oil, gas pump. This is the third time it happens, the first and second time it didnt want to start and after about an hour or so it started running normally, and this time its not starting at all and I just cant figure out what went wrong. My mecanic couldnt figure out either.

Intermidtent problems are difficult for the unexperienced mechanic. Having the proper diagnostic equiptment and qualified seasoned ASE certified technicians makes this type or diagnosis more normal than not.
This is generely a same day repair once the diagnosis is completed.
We would be glad to help

If you don't have a GM specialist, find one. These things are not hard to figure for an experienced specialist. You haven't told me enough info for me to even guess.
Check fuel pressure and ignition.

More information would be helpful. When it doesn't start does it just click, or does it crank over and just not start? It will probably be best to take into a shop and have it checked out to find the problem quickly. The more information you have for them will help reduce the time it will take to diagnose the problem.

Mine does the same thing. It will just turn over but not start. I'd let it sit for about 10 minutes then it would crank right up.
