truck acts like its running out of fuel

I ran out of feul on friday and was hell hitting it started after filling up but ran fine after. two days later it started running like it was running out of fuel again. i know i have a full tank but it sounds and acts exactly like it does when i am running out on the last drop. It starts fine but chugs and will run but very under powered and chugs just like i am aboiut empty. Doesnt matter if i am cruising on the highway or putting around town or just ideling it chugs like it running out. Any ideas. SCT says no codes are present. I have fuel in the 2nd filter housing and got about 2K on the filters.????

i noticed tonight the HFCM runs for like a minute before it shuts off. Any one have any ideas at all? Could a bad injectore cause this even with no problem starting?

You can get one from teamfordparts . com for about $225

I would recommend you check your fuel pressure, and also never run your truck much below 1/4 tank. Low fuel pressure kills the 6.0 injectors.

Yes, same price over the phone as on the internet. I'd do some google searching before you do business with pensacola. There are plenty of reviews

got the injector swapped out today and all is right with the world. It was #8 so on the driver side and not bad at all to get to. A very easy job for anyone that has simple tools. took a couple of hours. Now I just need to put the SCT back in to release the beast.
