    Check for spark on a spark plug and make sure it's getting gas.If you have both it will run.
    If you have a catalytic coverter on the exhaust it's pluged not letting the motor breath.
    If these don't work add alittle more info as to help pinpoint the problem.
    Good luck.

    I'm guessing the truck cranks, I would check for fuel and spark. How many miles on the motor, which motor is it? depending on miles it could be many things. need more info on truck :cool:
