2000 7.3 Died on the road and will not start

Hey guys I have a 2000 F350 with a 7.3, automatic with 123,000 miles and it cranked up fine yesterday and ran about 1/2 a mile and died and will not start back. It turns over fine but never fires at all. I checked the oil and (I am ashamed to say it was a gallon low) so I added a gallon thinking it may had triggured some sensor but it did not help. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance

sounds like the CPS to me (Crank Postioning Sensor) this is a common problem with these trucks and is a recall that can be fixed for free at the dealer

when you say it died did it just shut off like you turned the key off??

Are you getting a wait to start light?

Great minds think alike, but yours has way more knowledge about these than mine.

It cranked and ran fine for about 1/2 mile and it acted like the engine started slowing down until it shut off and now when I try to start it I get the normal lights and bells and the wait to start light goes out like normal but it just turns over and never even tries to fire up, I have already taken it in for the recall a while back so the cps (should) be good. Anything else that might cause this?

I still say the CPS I've been through 2 of them since I had the recall done. I would try replacing that and see if it changes anything, they don't cost much anymore.

throwing parts cheap or not is the worst idea in the world , but do what you gotta do, it could be the cps , but a quick scan would let you know for sure
