crank won't start

2001 7.3 125,000 manual trans.

went out started fine, let warm up, drove 3/10th of a mile to the end of the driveway stoped. Sat there long enough to figure out where I needed to go in town, put in first let out of the clutch died right there, when cranking good fuel smoke out the tail pipe so I don't think it's a fuel problem. Watched the tach it moves but I eleceted to change the CPS. still no fire if you wil no CEL on. Replaced the starter last weekend and glow plugs and reley in January, all other maitnenance performed as scheduled ie filters oil those things.

any ideas???

Does your wait to start light come on? Possible under valve cover harness on one side or other? Unplug ICP harness and try again? Oil level ok? Fuel filter assembly full of diesel? If you have fuel, and you have compression, you should have ignition.

I am glad it was something easy and cheap. If you haven't already - you might want to put on the clips Ford sells to keep it from happening again.

are you talking for the injectors? I did use the quarter trick for the under valve harness I read about a month or so ago. Just so happened I just finished changing the GPs put the thing back together and found the tip. I probaly knocked the injector clip off when replacing the cover then and it slowly vibrated off.


thanks
again.

That's what I meant - something to keep the harness from coming loose again. The quarter trick is something I've read about too - Cheaper than a 10 dollar piece of plastic from Ford.
