Cool Wont start!!!

Hello I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my 2001 Dodge 2500 5.9 cummins HO. It is not starting at all just dead on the road one day no missing no chugging just stopped like you turned the key off and I coasted to a stop and has not started sinces then. We have tryed ether use a whole can of that and never even fired off that. I'm reading place that its the injection pump but they say it should still start and fire off the ether if it was that. Then I'm hearing that it could be the cam sensor that can make it not fire off the ether. So if someone could help me out I don't have a code reader so I don't know how to get the codes. So I need some help fast on how to find and fix this problem my truck is still not broke in yet I only have bout 75000 miles on it. I love my truck trying to get it fixed fast to get it on the road again.

Turn the key to run and off 3 times and the odometer will show the codes.

All that a diesel needs to run is fuel and compression. So unless you have burnt holes in your pistons or something like that it should at least try to run on ether. Did you pull the intake *and intake heater* to spray ether? It may not work pre Turbo. However that still wont fix your problem just give you more of an idea. On these tricks the VP pump controls the timing and the pressurization of the fuel, So as long as there is fuel getting to the injection pump (did you run out? ) it is most likely the pump. But like the previous poster said, pull the codes and see what they say. If there are none related to engine things (I have a bad pump now but my codes are only for tranny things) it is most likely your vp44 and that's where I personally would start. Just my .02
