94 no power hard start and shuts off

my buddy has a 94 powerstroke when he first got it seemed to be low on power and was hard to start but its a powerstroke so i thought is was normal (lol). found some trash in the filter dropped both tanks and cleaned them. didnt help a week later even worse. changed the glowplugs and controler for the hard start worked for about a month stopped working again. now a few weeks later melted the ground wire and randomly shuts off even when driving then just comes back to life? also can hardly get out of its own way. any help would be awsome thanks

Shutting off and restarting fine sounds like a CPS.

Is the check engine light on?
I have seen many cases where the cutting out and all the sudden taking off is caused by a bad ICP (injection control pressure) sensor, located on the front of driver side head. Pull the plug on the sensor, if there is oil in it, it is likely the cause-there shouldnt be oil
