Angry Truck won't start help!!!!!!

I have 1995 f250 powerstroke 7.3. I got off work one day and started my truck and drove to the store. I got done in the store, started my truck and drove to Walmart, came out of Walmart and noticed it took a little bit longer to start but it did start. I drove home and shut it down. When I got up the next morning, the truck would only turn over, no smoke but tac does move just barely. Replaced batterys, checked hpop resevor (it is full), changed the camshaft positioning sensor. Still no start and no smoke out of exhaust. We were able to roll start it and it ran rough at first but then smoothed out. I drove it down the road about 2 miles and it shut down while running down road. I stopped and it
fired right back up with the starter and ran good back to the house. When I got to the house I turned it off and started it right back up with the starter. Let it set for about an hour and tried again but it would only turn over, no smoke from exhaust. We went back through and cleaned electrical connections on batteries and starter solenoid. Still nothing

Any ideas on what i should try next?

I am having similar problems. I pulled my fuel filter and noticed the bowl was a little low. I left it overnight and came out and removed the filter again and it was bone dry. I have checked everywhere for leaks but can't find any. I cleaned the valley as much as possible, stuffed paper towels underneath everything and covered it with baby powder to try to see a leak. Could not find one.

I have pulled my fuel filter bowl and everything looks fine. I pulled the fuel pump and when I actuated it against the ground it squirted out the fuel still inside so I am pretty sure it is still working.

I have checked my oil levels and replaced the Cam Position Sensor. I am at a loss as well.

I have plenty of fuel getting to the filter I left the top off of the filter and turned it over a couple of times and it filled up.

I now have fuel pressure and fuel in the filter bowl but still can not get it to start. I used either and got it to cough and run for a few seconds but that is all. Engine is turning over fast and it seems like it might catch but just doesn't. I still don't know what to check next. Some forums say to check the FICM but I don't think our trucks have one (Fuel Injection Control Module). I think that is a 6.0 thing.

I guess the HPOP is the next thing to replace. I am going to rent a scan tool first though and see if there are any codes.

I unplugged the Icp sensor and tried to start it and all it would do is turn over still no smoke and no start. I plugged it back in and tried again and same results. Is there a sensor inside of the motor somewhere? A guy I work with had a 95 f350 7.3 and he had the same problem as me and sold his truck after spend a lot of money and come to find out it was a sensor inside the motor somewhere. I am going to call the mechanic that fixed it tomorrow and see if he can remember what he did to fix it.

I also unplugged the ICP but it didn't start. I have ordered a new HPOP so we will give that a try as well.

my dad was able to borrow a trouble code scanner from one of his buddies today. he plugged it in and got several codes. (P1211, P1280, P1283, P0198, P0603) He cleared the codes and the truck started right up! Awesome! But it seemed to be running a little rough and didnt wined up very fast when he hit the gas, sounded slugish. It also died a couple of times while it was just sitting there idleing. He ran the tester again and again and only once did all of those codes pop up again. However, the only code that did keep poping up was the P1211. Does anyone know how i can correct this code. I think it has to do with an injector pressure sensor but im not possitive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
