6.0 start and dieas

Hey new to the site so ill get to it I have a 03 f-250 with a 6.0 I was on my way to work and the truck died like it had ran out of fuel. I pulled the top cap off and it was bone dry turned the key on and it pumped up a lot of air. Got it home put a pump on it and it will start but it is hard to get it to it runs for maybe a mint or two and dies. I’m at a loss there is no leaks that I can find any were. Had the truck a year and got to drive it maybe 7 months I have put a icp, ipr, cam sensor and crank sensor in it. Oh ya and had it on a computer this time and its not really showing any thing hope some one can help.

It is running out of fuel and have all most a full tank. Yes the top fuel filter housing cap just put new filters in when I got the truck home. When I can get it to start it runs rough I have had to put one injector in it and put new o rings in since I had it apart. Is the Ficm the one on the valve cover if so I browed one off a used truck and still the same.

It sounds like you have a blocked line with a cavitating pump. Any fuel tube, filter, strainer could be blocked, pinched or disconnected from inside the tank forward. Have you tried to run fuel to the fuel filter housing and checkd the flow volume? You said you are pumping air? It has to come from somewhere. If everything is intact externally then you may have to check the connections and pick-up in the fuel tank.

Once you do get a good stream of fuel to the filter housing check the pressure at the test port (forward side of fuel filter housing)? With a new pump there is no reason why you should have no fuel in the bowl if the lines are clear. If you don't have a guage to test pressure, if it squirts out at a good rate (55psi), like a super soaker water gun your problem is fixed. A number of others have had contamination in the HFCM that required cleaning to get the fuel flowing again.

Perhaps you have intermittant electricity to the fuel pump from the relay to the pump or from the ignition to the relay. You should hear it hum continuously when the key is in the run position (you don't have to start it).
