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!
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?

Re: 97 Powerstroke wont start!!?
got 238,xxx miles on my mechanical pump, still running....... going to do efuel when I get around to injectors and HPOP..... but for $169 nib mechanical pump....... put another mechanical pump in it while you collect parts for an efuel swap.

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..?
