Can you remember what brand fuel pump you put in when you replaced it? I've had countless Airtex fuel pumps fail this way, to the point of refusing to use them again. I have had good luck with Motorcraft parts and fuel pumps made by Precision.

Honestly I think it was Airtech. I know it was kinda a sketchy fit but I know I had everything hooked up right.

This is just 1 example. I've put 4 Airtex fuel pumps in my dually in one year. 5th pump was a precision, and the problems ceased.
This is only one example. There are others.

It's achieved by attacking the problem using theory and not just randomly changing parts hoping to get lucky

I been there. Before getting into those hard to reach areas, I would find the simplest way to test for malfunctions. There's always better way. M.E.

Knowing a full set of symptoms followed by applying theory and process of elimination in your head is the first angle of attack that should be used. When one does not know all of the vehicles symptoms, it makes a diagnosis very difficult, or a "shot in the dark". The OP does have some automobile knowledge, thankfully. Some, however, do not, and they become easily confused and start randomly changing parts, only to be disappointed in the end, and have a thinner pocketbook, with a car that still is not fixed. That's what I hate seeing happen to people.

Super late update****** It was either a faulty fuel pump I installed (Rock Auto) or I installed it wrong. A new fuel pump from O'Rieleys got it runnin! Sorry, but it just warmed up here and I finally got in the garage
