if it actually died then worst case would be cylinder/piston damage

whats weird is the gas cap says diesel fuel only as well as on the dash board..it must be a tricky one to pull off

i hope its not too bad

i guess one side of the pump was gas one was diesel. it will restart if i use starting fluid, i thought it was a lift pump issue at first. but does not want to idle , wont restrat if it dies

no when it starts it sounds fine, just idling up and down and stalling. i thought the lift pump was bad , when i tried to check the pressure i smelled gas and no pressure from the pump either
