TBC is nothing to do with the truck not starting... it means "Trailer Brake Fault"

Did you do anything with trailer wiring recently?
Did you short any wires out?

Did you get the fuel filter covers back on tight? Might be sucking air.

#1 problem.. NEVER use starting fluid in this truck!

Ok so the tbc fault is probably a fuse that has something to do with trailer wiring (I think there is like 3-4 fuses total)

Are you getting any codes?

tbc fault is from excessive cranking. ignore

you were having a problem before it stands to reason the problem got worse. Do you have any way of scanning the truck for codes?

Go get some Motorcraft filters and caps Have you tried emptying the filter bowl then with the cap off turn the key on ( DO NOT CRANK) see how long it takes to fill up the bowl (may need an extra pair of hands cause it should fill up in 2-3 secs) The way these housing are designed they leave very little room for error so aftermarket filters or caps have been known to cause problems. This is also true on the oil side.
If it doesnt fill up that fast you may need a fuel pump or the pickup in the tank is messed up.If that checks out and it still wont start with the motorcraft filters then i would look into injector buzz tests and noid lights
My truck had TBC fault when i had a high pressure oil leak and i was doing some long cranks 15-20 secs i assume it has to do with voltage drop.
