95 F-250 NO START NO OIL PRESS ON DASH

Truck ran fine before on cold start today i did not let glows run long enough before tring to start then it was just not starting but sounded like it wanted to. I did probably the wrong thing starting fluid still no start but now hours later sounds nothing like it wants to start even being plugged in for 4 hours?? the oil press guage on dash during cranking doesnt show any pressure?? i pulled codes had intermittant cps & turbo boost sensor A circ perf? truck has exhaust small 40hp chip intercooler etc normally starts easy.
Any good sights on oil pressure tests? or etc???

The oil pressure probably won't move when cranking. I had a 95 and mine never did. It's not actually a pressure gauge, it is only a switch. It only needs 2-3 psi to make it move. I would suspect the cps before anything. Does the tach jump at all when cranking?

Do you have any friends with the same kind of truck? It might be worth switching the cps from one truck to the other and cranking. Mine never showed oil pressure when I had. I asked the diesel tech where I worked if that was normal and thats when he told me it was a switch and not an actual gauge.

do not have that advantage... it just seems as though the injectors are not working not even tring to start. ive have the normal issues before with glow plug relays etc. this is different and with the tach moving? hpop ive seen in other threads that you can fill them or check them how????

Supposedly there is an hpop reservoir in front of the fuel filter housing. I don't know because I just read that on here somewhere the other day. When you used starting fluid, how much did you use? You could disconnect the glow plug relay and have someone spray it while cranking and see if that gets it started. Is it cranking over slow since it is cold? I had a no start with my 95 once even after it was plugged up all night. I hooked jumper cables to it and it started right up. May not be getting enough voltage for the cps to send the signal. Just some suggestions. It sounds like it is going to be something simple. Try jumping the truck and see what happens.

Look on the back of the reservoir at the top and see if you can see a hex head plug. Check this web site for a picture. I think this is a newer model truck, but shouldn't matter.
