01 powerstroke starts and dies

hi guys, im looking for some clues to get my truck goin. I have an 01 f250 with a 7.3 powerstroke and 259,000 miles, I bought it new. I have tach movement when it cranks, wait to start lite comes on, oil pressure comes up while it cranks. it doesn't crank slow and has new batteries. the fuel pump works and when I release the dump valve on the bowl, fuel sprays out. its definatly under pressure. fuel filter is about a month old. I have a quarter tank of fresh fuel and the oil is 15w-40 and is not low. I left it plugged in over nite and cycled the glow plugs 8 times and it started right away and dies as quick as it starts. im no spring chicken and I fix everthing myself, but im stumped on this one. any help would be greatly appreciated. no codes either. im in Michigan and it freakin cold....like high of 13 today. this morning when I tried to start it, I believe it was 6 degrees and it fired right away, so im ruling out thick oil being it was plugged in all nite.
