make sure the shifter is all the way in park.

Shifter way have slack in it due to the bolts that hold it to the shift cable loosenin themselves(common problem on fords).


Prolly not the problem, but hey, ya never know

cps is on the front of the truck. look up next to the crank pulley from the passenger side, and you will see a bracket with a plug and wires going into it. takes a 10mm wrench to get it out.

I found the cps and changed it. no help. Truck still wont start, batteries are about dead. But it cranks. it's like it's starving for fuel...

But it's home. Only $160 for towing. Now I need to find the problem.....

Are you hearing the fuel pump prime itself when you turn the key to "on"?

No SES light? hmmmmm.....most likely you are haing a fuel problem if theres not a SES light. But, it could have soft codes stored.

Im in cincy ohio.
I will charge the batteries.
And yes, I hear the fuel pump priming itself.

Thanks for any and all help! My dad says the guy across the street from him is a diesel mechanic who just so happens to own a F250/350 with a 7.3. He's looking for him to get home.

do this. dip some fuel out of the bowl, so the level goes down, then prime the pump some, and see if its filling up. might be you hear the pump running,. but is it getting fuel to the bowl?

When you changed the fuel filter the 1st time, did you add fuel before putting in the new filter. When you pulled out the old filter your fuel would have dropped and you should have added new fuel. If you didn't, then you may have gotten some air in there. So it's sucking air. Take off the filter and add fuel, put the filter back in and prime it. If there is air there that should take care of your problem. The way you explain sounds like it's sucking air. Hope this helps out.
