my powerstroke will not start at ALL please help!!!!

my 95 powerstroke all of the sudden does not start!!! im so lost iv put a new cam sensor and changed the fuel filter, and that was about 6 months ago. last week my truck out of nowhere wouldn't start and that week before I ran it dry on fuel. so it barley started and brought it home....I checked the fuel filter and it was gumed up with trash so I replaced it. so that morning it kinda hesitated but it started. I parked it today and it wouldn't start it just kept spinning over untili put a shot of either in it and it did that every time........I don't know what it is any ideas pleassssseeeee

Does the truck stay running after the shot of either, or does it just run until the either is gone? Have you checked the fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the fuel filter? You should have at least 20 lbs. while cranking the engine. You can use a cheap pencil type tire pressure gauge for this.
