I am new to this forum. Looking for help. I have a 96-97 PS. 7.3. Parked it last night, now refuses to start. This is a daily driver, i have driven it every day for over a year. The last few weeks, it has been randomly shutting off. But always restarted. I have replaced the fuel/ water separator filter, drained water out catch. Replaced some burned up fuses. Replaced glow plug control module. I notice there is no fuel smoke coming exhaust as normal at cranking. Fuel bowl is filling as normal. No tach reading at cranking as normal. I am assuming that cam position sensor has gone bad and ECU can not read cam positon therefore not allowing for injectors to fire. I do not have a scan tool to check codes. I have read from others saying possible ignition module.. but engine cranks as normal. Possible that tach side of ignition module has gone bad?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) illuminated? As madpogue mentioned, does the WTS light come on? If not, you need to recheck underhood fuse #22. If that has failed, your fuel heater element has probably shorted (and that same circuit also powers the PCM (ECU). You can disconnect the fuel heater at the funky-looking spade connector on the driver's side of the fuel bowl (2nd wire down). If the WTS light does come on try changing the CPS since they don't cost much and its always good to carry a spare. Cheers!
