    My truck will run about 10 seconds and then the engine dies. I hooked up a fuel pressure gauge and pressure starts out about 12-13 lbs and then starts falling off. New filter, same thing. This pump and strainer is only 3-4 months old. Is there anything I'm overlooking before I replace the fuel pump?

    Double check the voltage at the relay, or before the pump, make sure that is not falling off too.
