Truck won't fire, please help!

Hello ya'll, I have a 2001 f150, 5.4triton, 4x4 supercrew. I'm having trouble getting the truck started. About a month ago is when I first started having trouble with it, and it's happened more frequently until now it just won't crank up at all. The engine is turning over, but it it just won't fire. When it starts, it runs and drives fine, no cut off or rough idles. I replaced the cam sensor today (figured it'd be worth a shot for 20 bucks) but that wasn't it. If anyone else has had this problem, or has any idea what it is, please help! Thank you

-Ryan

Ryan, you havn't a place to start without doing some testing.
First, are there any codes set? CEL?
Check fuel pressure.
What does the PATS light do?
Check the crank sensor plug on the front of the motor near the A/C compressor.
Don't throw money and parts by guessing and a hope for good luck. It never works out in the end but cost and frustration.
Good luck..

Don't have a computer for diagnostic, think I'm gonna get it checked out today. She'll either be going on the wrecker or a mobile mechanic, I'll post back when I find out what it is. Thanks.
