2001 7.3 F-350 Died, wont start, help!!!

hi I am new to the forum and I have a huge problem, my truck wont start! My truck ran beautifully on the way to work and on the way back was running fine until about halfway home, my truck dies and I pull over. I pop the hood to see whats wrong and smoke was coming from the engine compartment. After the smoke cleared and while i was waiting for a tow I noitced that there were a few droplets of oil underneith my truck and I tried to start it, but no go. when I get home i flushed the radiator and put new fluid in, checked my oil levels and they were ok, but i added a little oil to top it off. My truck's wait to start light works and when I try to start it, it turns over, but no start up. I kept my eye on the tack when I try to start it and it does not move. I have not taken it to get the codes read yet. Could it be my cpm or my IPR? Here is a little info on my truck: F350, 7.3l, 131,000 miles, edge with atitude, afe intake, Garret turbo and Intercooler, 5in exhaust, and i just got a performance transmission put in as well as new gears in my axles. Sorry for such a long post, I just want to get my truck back on the road as it is my only way to work! Any help would be appreciated. by the way I just charged my batteries and it will turn over but not start. Thanks, Chris

No tacho movement might suggest the CPS has failed, but this would hardly result in smoke under the hood.

was it smoke or steam, why did you clean the radiator? Does sound like a CPS but they dont cause smoke, do you have melted wires anywhere? Is the valley full of oil or fuel?

Once again, was it smoke or steam, why did you clean the radiator?
Do you have melted wires anywhere? Is the valley full of oil or fuel?
Have you checked all the fuses??

I flushed the radiator just because I thought it needed to be done. I am not sure if it was smoke or steam it was very light color. I am going to check all the fuses in the morning. I removed the test bolt from the hpop and there was oil in it. I couldnt see any ruined wires, but I am not ruling that out. How do I check if the valley is full of fuel or oil? Thanks!

The valley between your heads, behind your fuel filter, under your turbo.
The smoke thing is throwing me though, it had to come from somewhere. Did it over heat?
I had an experience once with smoke and it was my steel fuel line had a hole rubbed in it and fuel was leaking into the valley, but the valley was full of fuel.
Sounds like you need to look it over really good, then get a scanner on it, pull the codes and check the high oil pressure and see what it reads cranking it over, it wont start under 500psi.

I just pulled my codes and here is what I pulled:

. P1119 Manifold air temperature sensor high imput

. P0237 Turbocharger boost sensor circuit low input

. P1280 I can find what this code means anywhere, what does it mean?

What does all this mean? What needs to be replaced? Any help would be great!
