2000, 7.3 Powerstroke wont start.

My 7.3 wont start, started running rough then died, changed the fuel filter and camshaft position switch ( recall letter ) and it will crank and sound like it is trying to start but wont, plugged in the block heater to help warm it up, but no luck. Any sudjestions?

not sure but sounds like a fuel pressure problem, if it sounds like it wants to crank , its probably fuel pressure

Mine did the exact same thing, I tried everything.. It turned out to be the glow plug relay. It is super easy to replace and once I did she fired up like a champ~!
