ok so trying to start still. cranks like a champ but wont turn over. i have plenty of oil in pan and in hpop resivoir. fuel pressure and oil pressure at the head. glow plugs are working. unplugged ipr and icp. replaced cps. tach moves. wts on no cel. tested wires from harness to idm all test good. harness all connected. ive been thinking idm.

i got t oreading the ol haynes manual and it gave this idea
no fuel to cylinders: remove a glow plug depress throttle slightly and crank the engine for five seconds ino fuel vapors come out of the glow plug hole go to step e.(plugged fuel return system) if fuel vapors come out remove the rest of the glow plugs and see if fuel vapor comes out of each hole when the engine is cranked if fuel comes out of just one hole clean and test the injection nozzle for that cylinder. crank the engine and note whether fuel vapor is coming out of every glow plug hole. if fuel vapor is coming from every cylinder go to step k( incorrect or contaminated fuel)

so i have vapor coing from every glow plug hole. my thought process is then that each injector is injecting which means the idm is working am i correct here?

so it tells me my next step is k incorrect or contaminated fuel. is there a way to check that with out draining it all and adding new.

any other thoughts or things i should try would be much appreciated

Ok, so you can crank the motor but no white smoke out the exhaust? Check fuse 22 under the hood. Middle row farthest from you. IF it has popped don't throw a new one in till you check the wiring on the fuel heater on the fuel bowl.If the fuse is good then swap the #1 and #2 relays.

check your fuel filter for oil, check fuel pressure

Get it scanned, unfortunately. IPR and ICP values will be very helpful, as well as buzz and contribution tests........

so i wouldnt run the risk that i buy it and still have to take it to a shop for diagnostics still. im guessing i would need to purchase the ford exspansion for it. and it should work on my 95 i can hook other san tools and my programmer on my it so i would think so

It should, but verify with AE first.

Will do I'm thinking it's a better rout I can spend about 300 on ae with ford enhancement instead of paying a shop at least 100 if not more for a 1 time scan

So took the truck to a shop and they couldn't tell me anything. Tonight I started pulling injectors to check orings I only had time to get 2 out. The orings seem fine but the nozzles seem really dirty. And interesting thing is there's sludge inside the injector cylinder. I know I was coming up on an oil change but dang. Can horrible oil quality cause my truck not to start?

Sludge in the oil section or sludge in the fuel section of the injector cylinder. Does it feel like oil or snot/mucus? Is it brown-ish or yellow?

Its dark dark brown almost black feels like sludgy gritty I don't know if I would say mucus. Its all over the inside of the cylinder when I pulled the injector. Seems like crusted burnt oil on the side of the injector and the nozzles are really crusty. Tomorrow I'm pulling the rest
