Please help

Hi I just bought an 01 7.3 the truck ran great through the test drive, the feller said it had ran great, he was hauling round bales with it and had a ton of power. Now when I drove it home, the drive is about 2 1/2 hours long, it was running good I could tell there was a u joint issue, no biggie, but when I got about a half hour from home it started losing power you couldn't hear that ford diesel grr grr grr you normally have (you'd know what I mean if you could here my sound effect) and when I'd push the pedal there'd be no power. When id let off I'd hit that spot and I could slowly creep it up to a decent speed, but lose power again, the feller behind me said every time I'd try to rev it up he'd see smoke, and a strong diesel smell (at 50mph) now the temp dropped to about -30 c when this started happening. When I was looking at the truck we'd have it in and out of the warm shop, test driving with less than an eighth of a tank of fuel. After I bought it I fuelled up at the nearest gas station, now could this be a bad fuel filter, bad fuel, injectors or what, and could this cause the engine light to come on I'm stumped please help

p1211 is icp related. injection pressure above/below desired

the icp is located on the drivers side head, towards the front.

pull it and see if theirs oil coming through it. if their is oil coming through it its time for a new one.
also check your fuel filter and possibly change it just to see if it helps.

if your driving around with a super low amount of fuel in the tank, it can be circulating junk from tank so I would look at fuel filter anyways along with ICP sensor. both are not all the expensive considering diesels in general.

if you were getting a miss possibly injectors. was the smoke, white, back, blue?

It was tough to tell what color the smoke was it was about 1 in the morning. I changed my fuel filter yesterday but still no change. I talked to my mechanic and he quoted me about $800 give or take to get it and put er in
