Does anyone have a No start checklist for a 95 7.3 that mechanics go by ??

I have a 95 thats been broke down for nearly a year now and I just can't figure out what went wrong I believe it's something with the oil system does anybody have any information about no start situations? Or any information on the oil system? It won't even smoke when I crank it over. It would quit running on me in the morning when I was taking my boy to school but would start back up and run fine all day. It did this like every morning. It would start sounding different then it starts loosing power I would hold the acceleration to the floor and it was barely firing then it would die. Finally one morning I started it up ran fine for a few min while I was letting it warm up then boom died and wouldn't start back up. It would get a lil smoke when I tried to start it then it just quit puffing smoke and still hasn't plz HELP!!

UVCH and connectors. IDM. Change oil first.
Sounds more like a valve cover harness or connectors

I checked all the connectors none of them look burnt or anything but do they have to be burnt to be bad ?

And I know I have one bad injector but it never really caused any trouble on the past just a bit of clicking while running

ICP. IDM. CPS just maybe. UVCH. Do dash lights come on? Hopefully not a bad fuel pump. IPR.

i worked at a ford garge doing most of the diesel work on the power stroke cps would be my first check even if the needle is moving it might not be getting the right signal to start the engine the only way to really test the valve cover gaskets would be pick up the pig tail that plugs into them the are two different styles one for the valve covers with 2 connectors and the single connector style
