97 Powerstroke wont start!!?

Just recently my truck decided it would just stop running.. the truck died like i turned it off, but when i crank the engine it just turns over and over and no ignition. ive replaced the CPS, that didnt work.. i than relized that i wasnt getting fuel to my filter.. so i changed the filter.. still nothing. i also checked my HPOP resivior and that 1 gallon top alluminum tank was empty.. so i filled it and i tried to clean the IPR but that did nothing as the truck still doesnt start...!? im lost and dont know what the problem is.. IDM or HPOP or LPOP..? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If youre not getting fuel into the bowl then your fuel pump is bad.

Click thread tools, move thread then click the obs tech section.

You have a mechanical fuel pump so if there is no fuel getting to the filter housing then it is either the pump or you have a fuel restriction in the lines.

Re: 97 Powerstroke wont start!!?

Okay thanks! here is an update, i cranked the engine a few times for about 20 sec each time and the fuel filter gets fuel but still didnt fill it full only about half way.. the oil in the HPOP didnt leak out any it stayed right at the top. also if it is my fuel pump would i be better off just going to electric or do these pumps usually last awhile?

Electric is so much better I think, if you have the money for that kind of swap. Cpr fuel systems is good or air dog. Definitely a fuel pump issue u have good luck.

Alright fuel pump works i checked the PSI it was 40-50 while cranking... when i crank the engine over for approx. 10 sec the oil pressure gauge moves up to normal on the dash in the truck.. im thinking a bad IDM maybe? what do you guys think..?
