I need help Please

My father in law has a 95 f350 with 170000 on it. Yesterday morning he drove it to work and it ran fine. When he got in it to come home the engine started up but would not idle up so he switched it off to try again then it wouldnt start every once in a while when turning the motor over it would try to fire a little but would never start. The truck is completely stock. and it only get driven about once a week. A bout 4 month ago the cam sensor went out and i changed it with a spare that i had for my truck, a week later the that cam sensor went out so i changed it again. Dont know what to do any help would be appreciated.

I was going to suggest another cam sensor. Has he looked over the wiring harness under the valve covers.

Stupid question...but what condition are the batteries in? They may have enough juice to turn the motor over, but not enough left over to activate the pcm into firing the injectors.


2012 F350 KR Dually, stock...bone stock.

early 99 PSD CC F250, DP Tuner F-5, Stealth Stage I, Casserly 160cc singles, Monsterbox Tranny, MBRP cool duals, ITP Regulated fuel system, Cobalts and Performax gauges, and way to much else to remember right now. **traded**

2004 Excursion Limited 6.0L, Dipricol gauges on the A-Pillar, Bilsteins and BFG's on the corners, lost EGR (not looking hard for it either), ARP studs, RCD Black Onyx head gaskets, MBRP 4" exhaust, (labor performed by Dan @ Midwest Transmission) **giggled when traded**
