truck died after a hard tug now wont start

Lastnight i was working with a bobcat moving snow when i got the bobcat stuck. I used my truck to try to pull it out. Well i got a bit of a run at it and when i gave it a good tug it killed my truck and now it turns over and it dosnt fire. I tried the fuel reset but nothing. The truck is a 2000 f250 psd

Sounds like something got "jostled" maybe.... Here's my No Start checklist

Does the WTS light come on? (shows the computer is running)

Is there fuel in the fuel bowl now? Does it refill after cranking? (open the drain level to check)

Tach Movement? - does the tach needle move up slightly when cranking?

Is your truck "chipped"? If so, remove it as a Test.

Could the fuel gauge be giving a bad reading? (Tank below 1/4?)

The PCM is actually associated with several fuses but, if you get the WTS light it's a good indication that the PCM is "alive".

There are many other things that can be wrong though, could have come "unplugged". You could just try and Get Lucky and give everything a good look-at maybe..

In a 2000, you should see the tach needle moving up slightly as you crank. If not, I'd consider the CPS (they are prone to failure). Everybody should carry a spare in their glovebox anyway, even if it didn't help you'd have the old one as your spare

Next, I gotta say if you can't find anything else yourself, you really need to get it on a good scanner to find out what's not happening, when it's supposed to

#1, shrink your sig pic, that m'fer is huge.
#2, try replacing your CPS with the spare you keep in your glove box (right?)

There is a HPOP reservoir, but start by checking your normal oil level with the dipstick.

Your sig pic is linked to your Photobucket... go there, hover your mouse over the picture, click on edit, then resize.

If your oil level is too low the truck wont run. Found that out the hard way.
