Q: Engine died 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty Diesel on 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

We were pulling a hill and let off on the excelorater and the engine died. We changed the cam senser, the fuel filter, pushed the reset button and dissconnected the batteries to reset the computer. It still won't start. It has been Freezing and a little below freezing. My husband just pulled the air filter. Filthy. I can't believe it wasn't changed before we bought it in july. It still won't start. My husband is checking the fuses.

My buddy has one of these at the hunting club and he had a problem with the fuel heater element was shorting out and blowing fuse #30 with fuse #30 out, there's no wait to start light on in the dash. That was our clue so we unplugged the fuel heater from the filter and replaced the shorted fuse and she fired right up. I don't know if thats the same fuse on your vehicle so check your owners manual.
try turning the engine from the flywheel . maybe engine positioing sensor is bad . check the bottom of that cup where the fuel filter goes sometimes gasket fall in threr.
