If you here the injectors then it sounds like a fuel pump. And NEVER spray anything in the truck to try and start it as you can have a run away.

If you spray a little starting fuid then you will be fine but to much and your truck will see an early grave. Do you have a scan tool that you can see if you are picking up at rpm reading. And even with a cam sensor bad it will start. If you want to spary a small about of starting fuid this works the best SMALL AMOUNT and if it dont start a little more and a little more till it just starts cuz to much and the thing will keep on running, but if you get it to start have someone inside to see if the rpms go up on the dash.

do you get a wait to start light? if not, the PCM is not getting power, and you have a blown fuse. more than likely it the fuel bowl heater on the back of the bowl. remove the harness plug from it and let it hang there, replace the fuse and it should fire up.

if you get a WTS light, check to see if you hear the Fuel pump running when key is in on position. if it runs, then it probably is your CPS.
