will not start please help

Ok... I have 96 ps. I just replced the gp relay and fuse 22 which was blown. The truck started and ran for couple hours and then stalled while I was driving. I just changed the CPS and it still will not start.
When I am cranking the engine the tach does not move. So I replaced the CPS. Ant other ideas.. The truck would on 1-2 occasions leading up to this just die while i was driving it.
Also I am in a cold climate in Boston. I was getting alot of white smoke when it was cold. The batteries are new..
Thank you and love this great site..

fuse

I have checked all fuses in the drivers side fuse box.
#22 was blown and I replaced it when I changed the GPR.
The truck started fine then I drove it for a few miles then it died.
Now the wait to start light does not come on and truck will not start.
What do you mean by umplugging fuel heater?
Thank you for your time!!!
