I staarted the truck this morning and it started a little hard drove to the gas station picked up coffee and whent to start the truck and it just cranks. I thought i might be out of fuel dic said 44 miles to E:doh:. so i call a towing company to deliver diesel because this station only sells gas. We put in 6 gallons of fuel and the truck still just cranks ckecked the fuel bowl and there was fuel the filter looked pretty dark. would a fuel filter cause a no start?:doh:

Oh yes biggest culprit out there. Fuel Filters. Well maybe the second, the first being no diesel. You are out of diesel when the gauge reads 1/4 of a tank. LOL

I was just wondering if maybe it could have been the CPS, but you are newer.

Do you have access to a OBD scanner, sounds like a CPS sensor to me. Had the same problem with mine about 2 months ago, cut off and had to have it towed home, wrecker set it down and it fired up. Then got to the point it wouldn't do anything but turn over. Replaced the CPS and haven't had anymore problems. That is also covered under warranty through a recall on either 1996 or 1997-2002, I think. Your local ford dealership can run your VIN to determine if it is covered.
