Unhappy 2001 stalls, no start

Driving down, freeway, SES light comes on, few miles later, I start getting a squealing sound, when I back out of the throttle , squeal stopped until a few more miles it starts again, after this happened a few more times over about 60 miles, I stopped at the first available exit, as I slowed at the top of the ramp, it stalled and will not fire. Could this be the notorious cam sensor or did the HPOP fail. It rolls over normal, just does start. Filter bowl is full of fuel. Any help would be appreciated!

This is gonna sound weird but, do you have a Trans Temp Gauge in the Instrument Cluster?

If NOT, as you're cranking it over on the starter, you should see the Tach needle "bump-up" some. This is a good test of the CPS functioning.

Some '01's got the upgraded cluster (w/TT) and then it's no longer supposed to show cranking rpm..

Next thing, that SES light came on for a reason and really would be the quickest way to point you towards what's going wrong (Unfortunately, it takes a special scanner to retrieve them and the Genreric OBD-II scanners like the Auto Parts stores use don't do us much good)

This truck still has the early style cluster in it, so no. At the time I didn't even think to look at the tach, but I know what your saying. At the time I started this thread, I was on an exit ramp 2 hrs from home so out of frustration I was looking for someone else's input. Got the truck back home now gonna check the tach needle and try to pull the codes out. The part about all this that has me confused is that high pitched squeal, like air leaving a balloon, how that would come from the sensor, if that were the case, and why It would stay running until I slowed down to around 20 mph. It stalled and never fired after, but cranks normally. Another variable in all this is that at the time I was pulling a trailer with a 73 bronco on it, don't think its a factor, but throwing it out there. Thanks for your input, this is my third powerstroke and always went after problems on my own, decided to join a forum this time around, its nice to have this as a tool! Thanks!

Getting the codes is definitely step one! If we offer advice before knowing those, it is pure speculation. The rpm showing while cranking is a quick easy little test though. Let us know on the codes

Started basic inspection yesterday, wiring, hoses, fluid levels, moved to the back of the motor and saw that the intake tube at the turbo housing was only half way on. When I removed the entire cold air intake, I could see that the impeller had been rubbing on the turbo housing, which would explain the high pitch squeal I was hearing that that would stop with a slight lift of the throttle, as the turbo would attempt to pull more air, the impeller shaft would walk toward the housing and wear away at it, now I have about 1/8" end play on the shaft but lateral is pretty good. So now that I know the squeal was from a roached turbo, I need to find out if the cause of that has a relationship with the cause of my no start issue. Have a friend of a friend coming over within the week with a "professional" scan tool to dig in to the computer side. Gonna swap out the CPS right away for giggles to see what happens while I'm waiting. Oh yeah, also filled the HPOP with oil, it went down some, but did not start. questioning the condition of the engine oil pump, junk turbo/no feed to HPOP. I'll keep updates.

Maybe check the nut that holds the gear on the front of HPOP.

Update!

After a lot of trail and error and tests, It turned out to be IPR. Tested pressure at oil rail and was only getting 80 psi. Put in a new IPR and truck came back to life! Other than sourcing a new turbo, I'll be back on the road once again. Thanks to the guys for the input they gave me to get this problem figured out, it was very much appreciated.
