01 7.3 recently having trouble starting

My truck has 253k on it and just over the last 2 weeks it's having some hard time starting intermittently. Sometimes it'll start right up like normal, I can drive somewhere like a gas station for a couple minutes and go to restart it and it will just crank and crank. and just today I was about 40 miles from home and I could not get it started at all, just kept cranking. I didn't want to do it but I had to give it a shot of ether to get it to turn over. What could be my problem, I have to get this sorted out quick, I'm a contractor and my truck is my lifeline...and my only transportation. Thanks

When was the last time you changed your oil and checked your fuel filter? Are you stock?

ICP IPR or HPOP may be getting weak, injectors also.

My first thought was oil and fuel filter which I did just recently change since it was due but the problem still persists. Hucorey those abbreviations mean nothing to me, gonna have to help me out a little more. I do have a spare cps that I bought seeing as I read they are prone to sudden failure. What I've noticed is it mostly happens after the trucks been running, I shut it down to go into a convenience store or something real quick and go to start it back up. In the morning it cranks right over, no issues.

Your going to have to get a monitor and read your Injector Control Pressure and HPOP duty cycle. Most inexpensive route is order a Bluetooth adapter at amazon $25 and buy the $5 app torque pro if you have a android smart phone.

When you try to start and it doesn't, does the tach move or sit at zero? If zero prolly another cps or small short in the cps wire.
