No fuel?

I have a 03 6.0, it started running rough, so I shut it off thinking I may have dirty fuel filters or water in the fuel, though I drain the water separator periodically. So I drained the water separator, now it won't start. Then I changed the fuel filters, and cycled the key about 12-15 times, and nothing.

So then I took the top filter off and noticed it was still dry from where I cleaned and changed the filter. So it's not getting any fuel.

So does this sound like the lift pump went bad, or is there something else I need to check before I start pulling the tank?


Thanks, Ryan

You don't have to pull the tank anyway.
The pump is part of the HFCM which is under the truck, where you drained the water separator.

I have a little more background for y'all.

Before I changed the filters, it would turn over and start, but would die as soon as it fired.

Do you hear the pump run when you cycle the key? Also pull your egr valve out and make sure that you don't have a chunk of carbon stuck in it holding the valve open. That's the usual start and stall issue.

I can hear the one under the hood, but I can't hear anything else. I'll let someone turn the key and I'll crawl under and see if I can hear the lift pump. Thanks Doc.

Has anyone ever had a fuel line get clogged up? We have tractors and have had them get clogged and had to blow them out.

The reason I'm asking is, when I took the old secondary filter out, there was some brown stuff around the edge of the inside of the filter housing. So could this indicate a leak in the fuel line somewhere?

Also, even if the the EGR valve was stuck, would that keep the fuel filter bowl from filling up with fuel?
