Shut down need help

I am new to the forum as well as powerstrokes. I have had cummins in the past but started getting sick of dodge problems and a fram filter killed my cummins.

My current truck is a 96 F-250 4x4 auto 165k on it, stock except for the exhaust.

Earlier today I was pulling my dump trailer empty the truck had a small hiccup on take off felt like it cut out when i put my foot down to pull out I let off tried again and it was fine for the rest of the day all the gauges read normal. Then tonight I was backing into my drive way and the truck shut down. Fired back up so i got it to the top of the driveway and parked it, checked for codes but the OBDII is bad or my code reader is it wouldnt turn on. Fuel filter is new if that helps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated I think that I included all of the important info if not let me know.

Thanks
JD

Truck cut out again today under real light throttle backing in at a job. Tried my buddies code reader no codes showed up. Went to replace the camshaft position sensor and then the truck would not even start. So put the old one back it started runs fine. gonna take the sensor back tommorow and get a new one see if it makes a difference. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks
JD

Most code readers won't show codes on these trucks. Does your tach move when you crank it? Do you get any smoke when you crank it?

Battery cables all tight?
I'm grasping at straws though, good luck

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Battery cables are tight, the tach does move when cranking, as far as smoke when cranking I'll get back to you on that I can't see the exhaust tip from inside the truck any more.
It was suggested to me today to try a crankshaft position sensor any thoughts on this.
Thanks
