Have YOU tried anything?
Sounds like a fuel supply issue.
Failing lift pump?
Or even water in the fuel?

i havent tried anything yet, but how would i be able to tell if there was water in the fuel?
It runs like crap, thats how you can tell.
Start with the Basics:
  1. Check your fuel filters
  2. If you have the resources, check your fuel presure.
  3. I feverything is fine get your injectors tested.

And then call Bill Heath of http://www.heathdiesel.com/ Tell him Rustin Hawver from Redding California sent you. He will steer you in the right direction. The man is a master with pre Duramax tuning.

Try looking at your glow-plug circuit? If it's not that, really start looking at your electrical system. With an older truck your going to experience some goofy stuff that will have to be repaired or replaced. You will need a multi-meter.
