6.0 air in fuel

I have a 03 6.0 and have problem after problem with it . Now the truck quit running like you turned it off. The water in fuel like is on so I changed filters and when I tried to fill up the fuel bowl on top of the engine I'm getting fuel with lots of air almost like a foamy diesel. What do I need to do some body, help me before I pull my hair out .
Thanks Matt

Do you have a way to check the fuel pressure at the fuel bowl on the engine?

It can have a lot of fuel but still be low on pressure. Has to be a minimum of 45 psi to start. How many miles on truck? Any mods done or is it stock?

Get an adapter and gauge to check your fuel pressure if you can. Any check engine light?

Ok. Try to scan the truck too and see what codes you have. You can have other codes without and check engine light. How much knowledge do you have of the 6.0? Don't take that wrong, just wanting to know to make it easier for us to help. You say you've had all kinds of problems. What kind of issues? Have you done the repairs?
