Exclamation Truck died and wont start! Now Fixed!

1997 Ford F350 7.3L Powerstroke
Truck died after pulling up to a stop sign. Tried to restart but it wont. I got the truck back to the house. Luckly it was only 1.5 miles. Replaced the cam shaft sensor again, (ford house did it again during the recall after I replaced it). Still cranks over good. Replaced fuel filter, got oil in the High Pressure Oil Pump. I figure out whats going on. Can crank on it for about a minute still not still wont crank up. Maybe a coincidence, I changed the oil Friday afternoon, but it ran good Fri and Saturday till about 7pm. Not throwing up a check engine light. I am just puzzled about this.

Thumbs up ipr valve

the IPR valve is the valve that lets oil to the hpop then to your oil rail to run your injectors and if its got a bad O-ring or stuck, it will not have oil to fire your injectors.what kind of miles are on your truck?

The truck has 300,500 miles on it. I have a guy with a scanner coming over this afternoon, so hopefully we can find something.

Just got through getting it scanned. Came back with the ICP valve error. Also ran a check on the HPOP and it came back with only 20lbs of pressure.

Talked to a ford dealer about it, he said unplug it and it may start. NO start. There was oil on the inside of the connector, so wondering if that has any impact on the situation.
