My 2004 Died while driving down the road

I have a 2004 that died while I was driving down the road. I thought it was the filters. I changed them on the side of the road. When I tried to start it, it would not turn over. We hooked it up to some jumper cables and it started to turn over but would not start. I check the filter on top of the motor and it did not have fuel in it. We turned to key on and off a few times and it filled. Then when we tried to start it, It would run real rough and knock then die. Now it will turn over but will not start. Can anyone help????

Check the fuel filter again. If its empty again , I would say that your fuel pump is on its way out. How much fuel is in the tank?

The filter was empty again. We added some more fuel and got the same results. If it is the fuel pump, then witch one. i am being told that there are two. One inside the tank and one on the frame under the drivers seat. The one under the drivers seat will hum when you turn the key on but i known that may not mean much. Thanks Ben

There is just the one on the frame. You need to monitor your fuel pressure to make sure the pump is producing enough pressure. Needs to be at 45-48 psi minimum at the filter housing on the engine.

OK. Changed the fuel pump. Still doing the same thing. I turn the key to fill the filter on the top of the motor. Put the cap bak on. The truck will start an run for about a minuete. Then die. I did notice that there is a lot of bubbles in the fuel when we fill the top filter. Still needing help.

if you find out what the problem is would you let me know I am having similar problems. Mine started 2 weeks ago. If I figure it out I will let you know what I did. yotekiller243

My 04 E350 work van just did the same thing yesterday. It just died while driving. My Ford dealer could not take it in because they were too busy so I had it towed to my shop instead.
I have no way to check the codes. Is there a scanner available that can read the codes especially the codes not throwing a check engine light?

thanks,

George
