Yeah if you are not hearing the fuel pump priming right before you start the engine then it could be bad.

well, i took a gamble on deciding between the fuel pump and ipdm board...

pulled the pump out...NO gas in the tank. i was a little pissed, had i poured in gas before hand, truck wouldve started. but, i think in the end its better i just go ahead and put the new pump in. my wife said the truck did read JUST below a quarter tank when it cut off. and i did notice it was reading that when i tried cranking it, and sometimes it would read completely empty with the gas light on.

when i noticed no gas, i poured in 5 gal and put the old pump in and turned on...but i decided to pull it out and put the new one in. clearly the float wasnt working, so i better fix it now. although, neither pump made a buzz or sound when i turned the key...wierd. well, its on and running now, gonna pay attention this week how this new pump is reading the level. anywho, thanks for all the input and help fellas, greatly appreciated.

Glad you could sort it out without any further troubleshooting. Now you can get back to enjoying your truck.

well my wife can enjoy it lol...i dont get to drive it much! noticed gas spilling out of it today, turns out the new pumps dont come with the little plastic snap thing that the hose snaps too, so be sure to swap those over when putting the hose back on the new pump.

Thats good to know. We definitely don't need to give the Armada a reason to up its gas intake!
