My 96

So, awesome morning. Have my 24 foot equipment trailer hooked to my pickup so I decide to take the Tbird to work. fire it up and go back in the house after my jacket and as soon as I open the door again I see a huge puddle of gas under it. OK, I'll fix it later. Fire up the pickup, let it run for about a minute and kick it up to high idle, and go back in the house. Go back out about 5 minutes later, kick it off high idle, and take off. Got down to the end of the street and the truck just quits. Uh oh. Cycle the key, notice the wait to start light is not coming on. Sweet. Check all the fuses, none blown in either panel. It cranks but doesn't blow any white smoke. Go ballistic for a few minutes, hotwire the clutch start interlock and back it out of the intersection on the starter. Now I'm pretty mad, break out the prybar and Ford wrench and fix the Tbird (fuel rail wasn't seated on #8 injector). Truck has a new CPS in it. Anyone have any ideas? I haven't tried to pull codes yet, I lent my Edge out last week. Going to try later tonight.

Edit: Should also add that glow plugs, harnesses, v/c gaskets and GPR are all new.

let me know what you get for codes nate....u might just for kicks check the level in the HPOP resevour....and you could also try starting it with the ICP disconnected. The last thing i would check is there should be a few fusable links coming off of the battery cables that would be worth checking to see if any are blown.......definately let me know what codes you get when you can buddy

bothers me you dont have any wait to start light, but with no fuses blown ,fuse to fuel heater can short back through causing internal processor concern ,(cause no wait to start light), need to try and pull codes,if wil not communicate, may get ugly

Trying to avoid thoughts of a dead PCM, but that was my first idea. I want to eliminate everything else first.
