Dude, you are a genius!! I have the EXACT same truck, the EXACT same engine,and the EXACT same issue. I have not found anyone else with the same issue until now, and I would have never thought of unhooking each coil and cranking...
Well, when I got to #8...BAM!! She fired right up, music to my ears after going nuts trying to track the problem down. Granted, this was AFTER I replaced the ECM, which the dealer misdiagnosed. Fortunately, I didn't buy it through them so I'm not out too much...and I have a spare ECM!
Did you replace your coil yet? Did that fix it completely, or was it a wiring issue?
Thanks again for the awesome tip, I just drove my truck around the block for the first time in 2 weeks
