96 F350 wont start

I have a 1996 F350 with the 7.3 and can not get it started. A buddy of mine was driving it and said that he hit a bump and it died. Since then we have not been able to get it started. I need help! This is what I have tried it cranks just fine, the tack moves when cranking, fuel going into the fuel bowl, all the fuses are good and will start for just a second with a shot of starting fluid.

Have you looked in to changing the CPS? Or maybe it got knocked out of the slot?

try disconnecting the fuel heater on the fuel cup. Also probably blown the fuse to it. (under hood, 30-35 amp) won't start without it. good luck

you need to get a scan tool on it and check for icp pressure. sounds like a high pressure oil problem

yes , you need at least 500 psi to start. a low reading of about 150 to 200 would mean possible leaking o rings, 0 psi would mean a wide open IPR or a bad ICP. Pull the plug on the ICP, if it starts ,you have a bad ICP
