    V6 or V8 look at crank pulley, bottom front possible timing problem.Do you have fuel getting in to motor?
    Have you look at the fuel pump?

You got a 7.3liter diesel. First thing to do is make sure the oil is at the proper level and if its real dirty change it. Powerstrokes have to have correct oil level to start and it needs to be clean. Next I would change the fuel filter. If it still doesnt start you need to have the fuel psi checked it should be about 60psi key on engine off, 50-55psi running. If that checks correct you will need to hook it up to a diagnostic scanner and scan for codes, you could have an Injector Driver Module failure ($900), or a high psi oil leak in the system (to check that you need to look at the hi psi oil pid it needs to read 600psi to start. These motors are a bit complicated hope I helped some.

Fuel injectors should be next on your list of things to check and replace. You might also check your oil to see if it has turned any abnormal color. This will let you know if you have a liquid leak in the engine. When you removed the old spark plugs were any of them wet?

96 T100 (3.4), will only run for 2-3 seconds then quit, change fuel filter, pump, cam sensor and crank sensor still won't run, but will run on ether. Where to go next?

What you are telling me is the engine is firing the plugs but not getting fuel.
When you changed the fuel pump and filter, did you check the fuel pressure at the rail ?
Are the injectors getting power and ground pulse ??

Have a ford explorer 2005 xlt having problem getting it to start, have change the fuel pump and fuel filter, also change the crank shaft sensor and the cam shaft sensor, still not starting can any...

Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they just stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

Have you hooked a scanner to the computer and checked the oxygen sensor(s)? If they are bad they could lean out the engine. The MAF Sensor can cause starting issues. Check the filter side of the MAF Sensor for any debris. I have found feathers, leaves, rags, etc. in them.

Remember an engine needs three things to work properly...Air / Fuel / Ignition(Spark)

This Symptom (WITHOUT)> Check Engine Light on Is indicative of a FUEL PUMP INTERMITTEN Failure/FUES FILTER CLOGGING Problem, But (WITH Check Engine Light ILUMINATED)< The Vehicle Must Be Connected to A CODE/ Diagnostic Tool to Interpret What Code and Where the Problem IS Located. I am Sure this WILL Help LEAD you to Your Problem.
