Angry 2003 f-350 6.0 oil change and fuel filters and NO START HELP HORSES STRANDED!

I changed my oil and all of the fuel and oil filters last night doing preventive maintenance and it started up for a minute and now won't start!! PLEASE HELP! I JUST HAD FORD PUT IN A NEW TRANSMISSION, NEW HEADS AND HEAD GASKET! $10,000.00 now because of an oil change it won't Start? this is bizarre!! batteries are going now because of the engine not starting! I used all ford filters! I cycled it three times before the start! the best advice that the tech at the ford dealership gave me was to keep on cranking it!

Ok, how long ago was the head gaskets changed?
What type of oil did you put in the truck?
Type of filters?
What's the temps like where your at?
Just trying to get a better understanding of your situation, this is quiet bizarre. The more info available the better chances of people being able to help diagnose your situation.
Just trying to assist.

I dont know about head gaskets or oil type. Filters came from napa. temp was real cold when truck died but it has been in neighbors heated shop for a week. engine oil was very low when truck died. I had to jump start truck in morning so i replaced batteries engine wont even pop with starting fluid. ya its a puzzler.

pighauler reinstall the lower fuel filter it may be the o ring also try to use a diesel additive if if is cold i am using the stp additive and the diesel kleen! cycle it meaning just turn the glow plug on and have the cap of the upper filter off and if it is working properly the fuel will overflow! try that before and see if the fuel is pumping into the upper filter then again after you reinstall the lower filter. they say to cycle it at least three times!

Pighauler, I bet your initial problem was the HPOP was bad and because you kept trying to start it you let the batteries get lower and lower. And low batteries will kill the FICM.

But keep us updated. You can get a good FICM from swamps diesel.
