My '95 Doesnt wanna start after it warms up!!!

So a few days ago my truck started acting up. My dad drove it to charlotte to prica a job, and when he got in it to leave, it wouldn't start. I had to drive down there with mom about 40 miles to get him. But when we got there my dad grabbed a can of ether out of the toolbox, disconnected the glowplugs, and sprayed a little bit on my intake (DIY).

The truck fired right up, and we drove it back home.

We've noticed it idles a little weird; it kicks the rpms up a little above idle every minute or so. We've replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter (routine maintenance), cam position sensor, and computer. The darn thing still acts up.

When the engine gets warmed up, and you cut it off, it will not start back for anything. It has to be ethered. Of course we have only done that twice, and i know it is bad for the engine.

Guy at the Ford place said it could be the HPOP, or an injector O-ring letting oil in the cylinder making it dead. When it is idling, it kinda shakes a bit, kinda like it is missing.

I need help bad! I miss my truck! It is parked in the yard

Typical cummins owner.
