    New member needs help
    2010 5.7L Tundra ran fine yesterday and this morning it won't start. It turns over strong, but won't start. Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance!

    All I've done so far is tried to jump it with jump box even though it cranked just to see if it needed a little more juice. No luck , I left for work. I'm going to attempt to diagnose when I get home. Any heads up advise would be most appreciative

    The same thing happened to my truck and I found out that it was the ignition fuse that blew.. That would be a good thing to check as well

    There have been ocations when the fuel sending unit fails or gives you a false reading. Make sure you have fuel.

    The unit is a one piece. I do believe the sending unit only is around 70.00 or the whole unit for 370-400.00.

    In a very basic diagnosis you need three things for the engine to start:
    1. Ignition 2. Compression 3. Fuel. Throwing parts at it through "trial and error" can get very expensive and frustrating. Have it towed to a shop that you trust, pay a troubleshooting/diagnosis fee, and get it done without guess work. Good luck.

    Do you have 'Flex Fuel'? I've had this issue when I had an F150. Not sure what the problem was but it wouldn't start when the truck was at an incline (driveway). It started fine after I backed up and got the truck level.

    Also, this only happened after a freeze, it might have something to do with moisture leaking into the tank (I had a 'capless' system on that truck).

    Any updates on the truck? Did you get it figured out?
