What's the status of your CPS (Crank Position Sensor)? Has it been changed yet? Kinda sounds like that kind of issue....

Are you taking it to a diesel shop or somebody who really knows diesels? Do they have the proper code reader (you need a professional one to read our trucks).

With the right equipment, if there really are no codes and you've already had the CPS changed, I would lean towards Fuel Delivery. Maybe a problem in the tank with clogged screens or something? Monitoring fuel pressure would let you eliminate that...
