My truck has had a cranking issue for the past 5 year. I wouldn't think it's the fuel pump because I wouldn't think it would last that long. I just got the engine service and all new gaskets on it. I just had a brand new fly wheel and timing chain put on as of 6/28/15. I'm very confused. Please help. By the way. When I say cranking issue I have to turn the key 3 to 4 times before it will actually crank.

I would think that having to turn the key multiple times before the engine cranks [not starts, but just turns over] and that during the first few times you turn the key, you don't hear the starter, indicates an electrical problem between the battery, ignition key and starter.


Probably first check that the starter relay is working properly, then test the starter itself is being properly energized.
