I have a 2000 Ford F550 with a 7.3 liter diesel. It won't start. I can get it to run for about 2 seconds and then it dies and won't start up again. I have removed the fuel tank, cleaned it and blown out the fuel line. Had the glow plugs checked, replaced the inline fuel pump, and still nothing. It has plenty of battery power and the engine turns over. Just won't fire. I have also replaced the air filter and all fuel filters. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Sounds like the injector driver module, or mechanical fuel pump. Fuel supply or injector control. Lots of things to check- some simple, some not so much.
