No Start

I've had no problems for a while, didnt change anything. Truck started fine this morning, drove less than half a mile to the local gas station for some pop and chips. Got back out and tried to start my truck with no luck. Checked everything I can think of. Fuel, GP and GPR, tach moves, cranks normal, fuses look fine, SES light comes on when i turn the key over. I'm stumped. just cranks and dosnt even act like its gonna hit at all

1. check your oil level
2. behind your fuel filter housing there is the valve to drain out water from the water separator / filter assy. Open the valve all the way and when it is no longer draining roll the key to the ON position and see if you are now leaking fuel.

if not start testing the fuel pump and checking for power to pump.
(FP located on frame rail under drivers seat)

3. unplug the ICP sensor and try to start
(ICP sensor located on drivers side head toward the front of the motor. 2 wire plug.)
if the truck starts then your ICP sensor is bad

4. have you ever replaced the CPS (Cam position sensor)?

5. take off the plastic powerstroke plate and under that there is a bolt that can be removed with a allen wrench. remove the bolt and stick the allen wrench down the hole. if the oil is within 1 inch of the top of the hole then you are good. if it is lower than 1-1.5 inches then your HPOP (High Pressure Oil Pump) is bad and needs replaced.

if all else fails... with the palm of your hand... on the drivers side fender at the F350 badge smack the fender HARD.
now try and start.. if it fires up then go get a new IDM (Injector Driver Module) soon.

I hope this helps.... if not then it sure will rule out quite a bit.

Good Luck!

Well my dad came to the rescue and just proved that I am still learning a lot about diesels. I think im gonna right that list of things down and use it as a check list lol. gave it a small hit of ether and it started right up, said it might have had a lot of fuel on the pistons and/or my glow plugs might not be working. the wts light comes on but im gonna check all my plugs and my relay
