replaced air compressor and now the engine wont run

truck ran fine, replaced the air compressor now the truck will only run with starting fluid. we have fuel coming out the return line to the tank which would tell us we have fuel through the system. it turns over just fine, (new batteries ect) will not run without starting fluid. once we stop with the starting fluid it dies. but it is not a fuel problem. ddec 4 in a 2002 fld. have checked the fuse out of battery box. and in fuse pannel all r good. ???????????????????????????

Well there's a crank sensor and a timing sensor that sits right behind the air compressor any chance that you hit one those when you did the R/R and damaged them. The sensor could have just quit working. Had friend of mine drove up to gate to deliver shut truck off went to restart truck all it would do is turn over wouldn't start had to have Detroit come and work on it end up being one of those sensors I am talking about ( quit the starting fluid). One sensor is going to be just above compressor and the other sensor will be inline with the crank

It could be (one of) 2 sensors: crank sensor or/and timing sensor. Check if they are still working. You can also check aircompressorprice.com for the reviews and guides.
