2000 f350.... Ran great now no start

Did some searching but am new to PSD's. I've had this clean 00 for a month have had no problems up until a week ago I noticed a slight miss at idle but didn't think anything of it because everything else was great. Well, I was wrong I guess. Me and the wife were gone for the weekend left the truck in the garage for 3 days... Got back last night had to run to the store. Truck fired right up! Got back and parked it with no problem. This morning I get up to start my day and no start. Wait to start light comes on... I checked the oil... Level was fine. Truck turns over fast just no start. Rpm gauge sits still on 0 oil psi is over 1/2 way up the scale. Fuel shows over 1/4 tank. I'm guessing CPS? Where is it located?

If you're cranking at normal speed and the tach needle doesn't move up slightly as you crank, yes, I'd suspect the CPS....

EVERYBODY should carry a spare in the glovebox and the tools to change it (10mm 6-point, extension, breaker-bar/ratchet - all 1/4 is what I have, plus something to gently "pry" it out like a screwdriver)

It's located at the dampener end of the crankshaft on the passenger side, maybe 7 o'clock if you were looking from the bumper, back.

Next, pick a CPS to put in there -> Black, Grey, & Dark Blue Cam Position Sensor Perdels Test - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com

What you describe is actually not typical of how they fail, and chances are, it's already been changed under recall (org was black, replacement gray). Usually they quit when hot and restart after cooling down for 10 mins or so, but anything's possible.

BUT, if you're stuck, get Anything Even if it doesn't fix the problem you haven't wasted the money, because again, you should carry a spare so it's a good start

Did it fix the problem? The other thing that happens (to me at least) is my fuel bowl heater blows the 30 amp fuse. so i unplug the fuel bowl heater and replace the blown fuse.
