Does it run on starter fluid or brake cleaner? If you haven't tried it yet, spray some in the air inlet and see if it starts on that. That would mean the engine is okay except it doesn't get fuel. If it helps it might help it to prime if you keep it running for half a minute or so with small puffs in the air intake.

It does not fire on starting fluid
Technician: Eurotruck72, workshop foreman replied 3 months ago
Then it isn't getting air or there will be something mechanical wrong. Closed throttle valve in the inlet would do that or the camshaft timing can be of or broken.

Has new cam position sensor and the timing has been checked via the valve timing
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
We’re is the throttle valve located and how would you test it
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The IPR VALVE is brand new and working fine. We put 12 volts to this unit while cranking the engine and still did not fire
Technician: Eurotruck72, workshop foreman replied 3 months ago

It might not have one but if it does it will be in the air intake. Also maybe the engine brake and/or the exhaust brake is engaged or stuck. Does it have compression (if you don't the starting will be faster than normal)? If there is compression and air flowing in the engine there should be some action from the brake-cleaner fluid. Do you have a engine malfunction light or code on the dash?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No lights and no codes
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I will turn the exhaust brake off and try it
Technician: Eurotruck72, workshop foreman replied 3 months ago

Also no lights when you put the ignition on? That would indicate no electric power to the ECU but then it would run on brakecleaner (or starter fluid)

The truck was idling and warming up when it shut off
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have dash lights and power to the ecu. The injectors buzz when you turn the key on
Technician: Eurotruck72, workshop foreman replied 3 months ago
Any luck yet? Was the engine brake one or something else maybe?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The engine brake was turned off and no change. Have air and fuel but no start icp was working as it should and everything appears to be functioning. Obviously there is something I am not catching so I sent it to the dealer today
