Crank No Start?

Hello everyone im new to the site. I have a 2000 F-250 psd with 53,000 miles. The other day i was driving down the road and the truck died i pulled over to check codes there were none. So i called the nearest ford dealership and I talked to one of the techs they said it was the cam sensor so i replaced it. Still crank but no start. Then I called edge they told me that my pcm lost its memory and they would send me a stock writer for it, so i reprogramed the pcm still no start. So i got the bright idea to swap pcms with my buddies truck, didn't work. I know im getting fuel because i spun the fuel filter cap off and turned the key on and it started filling up the bowl. Thats were Im at. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks dan

on the front of hte motor there is a thin resevour....bout eight inches wise and about an inch and a half front to back. on the drivers side of it there is a plug...pull hte plug and check the oil level in there with a small screwdriver. The oil should be within one inch of the top....

you will need to take the stock sending unit out, plug in a manual oil pressure gauge, and check it with the engine running......or cranking since it wont fire...
