Default 94 turbo 7.3 no start or starts and dies no restart need help

This truck has 200,000 miles runs great 1 day the next may start right up run for 1 minute or so and dies like key was turned off. Will not start again for a little while 10 minutes or so then does the same thing. Or it may not start at all the first time. There is fuel in the filter every time I check it. I am not really up on the computer controls so dummy terms will be best for me. Any help will be appreciated.

it might be the Cam Position Sensor. (CPS) or a failing High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP). is it a "powerstroke" or just the "turbo diesel"?

to my knowledge, no. just replace it. there is/ was a recall from ford for it. the HPOP. is at the front of the engine on top. it's in the bottom of the valley. the HPOP isn't a cheap part. on Diesel performance parts and accessories. Diesel injectors, pumps, filters, kits, additive, gauges and apparel.. it's $400.

Check all of your wire and connections. They tend to melt sometimes. Ive had the IPR wire melt which causes my no start issue. Ive also had a UVCH pigtail melt. Check my no start thread for more info

on a body lift you dont want more than 3 inches cause then the body gets to far from the frame and easier ta roll and twist body off cab, go suspension
