starting problems w/06 6.0l 350

I have a 06 350 6.0l, that wont start. Have had 2 error codes and i cant remember exactly what they were, but i remember one was something about low fuel pressure(not directed to any specific cylinder) and something about a fan circuit. cleared them both times and had no more problems. Truck was running great. Last weekend had the same problem of it not starting and sounding like it wasnt getting any fuel, changed the fuel fitlers and it started and ran w/no problems. Yesterday i drove it for bout 2 hours 2.5 hours in the morning and had no problems w/it running. Parked it for awhile then had to move it and right after i moved it shut it off to move my car, went to go start it and would crank but would not start. Sounded like it wasnt getting any fuel, so i went and got another set of motorcraft fuel filters, installed them w/the new o-rings and still would not start. Can anyone help or does anyone have any suggestions on where i should start?

Do you have any way to monitore your fuel pressure?

You can always open a banjo bolt on the head, just above the belt tensioner to let the air escape.

If you have no air there, you should check your fuel pressure with a gauge

right now I dont have any way to monitore the fuel pressure. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by banjo bolt. I see one right over top the tensioner the has a steel line running to it on the passenger side. Is that the one you mean and should I loosen it while the fuel pump is running?

Exactly, loose it and tell somebody to turn the key on engine off, and you will see if air comes out.

went ahead and tried it, first crack didnt have any air and i tried it again and tried it like i was bleeding it and no air just a hole bunch of fuel. The other problem i have now is my batteries are dying. I'm gonna charge them then try again. Do you know of any place that might rent a fuel pressure test kit?

I'm not pretty sure, you could try at Autozone, im from Mexico, sorry

Or you could buy the stuff you need

A manometer 0-80 psi
a fitting that fits the plug in the filter housing
