@brendausey you tell me where you want to start the troubleshooting. Whenever you are ready! We just do a bit at a time and one symptom at a time. We have a really good community here and you will find that people are very helpful, kind and friendly. Age, gender, background etc does not matter to us. Everybody is welcomed and everybody gets treated with respect and dignity. That is what we do on here.

How many miles do you have on your truck? Is it an automatic or a standard?

@brendausey none of this "new battery and it's dead today I talked to a mechanic and they said that it was the air filter" makes a lot of sense. Let's stat at teh beginning and let's see if we can at least get you in the right direction.Tell us about the battery. It's new means how old? When did you buy it and why? What happened after you installed it? Will your truck turn over? What have you checked?

Sure, it could be the timing chain but it could also be 100 other things. Remember that you need three things for your engine to start. You need fuel, you need spark and you need air. You need to check fo all of those things first. Check if you hear the fuel pump when you first start your truck. It is in the fuel tank. So you may need to stand next to it while somebody else turns the key. Listen carefully if it kicks in.

If your Truck turns over but does not fire, you need to check for sparks. You can do that by removing a spark plug wire and stick a spark plug in there. Hold it against ground or better prop it up so it touches ground without you holding it. Then turn the engine over. Do you see sparks between the electrodes of the spark plug.

Anyhow, you see there is a lot that you can check. There are always 100's of theories of what this could be but unless you check a few things, consider all of those as suggestions and not solutions.

Let's start you off by telling us what you have checked etc. The more of a detailed history you can provide, the more likely you are of getting a helpful answer. BTW what engine size and what exact year is your Silverado?
