Changed Fuel Filters on 07 F350 Runs Like Garbage now???

I changed both my filters on my 2007 F350 for the first time now the truck runs like crap. It was already a cold start now it seems to stay that way even after it gets up to temperature any ideas

Thanks

Your truck could be sucking air past one of the filter caps if its not sealed tight. If there is air in the system it will take about 1/4 tank of fuel to purge it all out.
