Unhappy WILL NOT START

hey guys i got a problem. i just bought a 95 f-350 powerstroke with a 5spd 4x4. it ran fine on the way home, the next morning the batteries had drained down somehow and wouldnt start so i put some different batteries in charged them up and now it just cranks and cranks and cranks it acts like its not gettin any fuel at all now, at first it would puff alot of white smoke but now its nothing no smoke absolutly nothing i put a new cam sensor in from an auto parts store but it still wouldnt start did the same thing, is it possible i got a bad sensor the tach wouldnt even budge when i was cranking it before and now it still doesnt with the new sensor i checked and rechecked the conections but they where fine so im completely stumped, and i checked the fuel filter it appears fine and the fuel bowl was full of fuel. so whats the next thing to do? get a different sensor? i also checked the oil its about half a quart low so that wouldnt afect the hpop? thanks alot in advance, ben.

I aggree with this. Also try and find a OBDI scanner. Scan for codes. Your truck maybe OBDII though. With out looking at the plug I can't really tell you. But I do know it was in that time frame they switched from OBDI to OBDII.

Fill up that half quart of oil. Also do you hear the fuel pump kicking on when you turn the key on.

Its always possible you got a bad sensor from the parts store. Its up to you its your money and time. I wouldn't throw parts at it till you get it scanned in my opinion
