Please help

Okay, I just had the DPF replaced under warranty. Before I took the truck in it was stalling after a 20 minute ride when I would try to back into a parking space. I figured it was just part of the DPF issue. I got the truck back on wednesday. I only drove it a little while on thursday with no issues. I drove to work this morning and went to back into my space and....bam, it stalled.

I shut off the key and sat while the guys I work with laughed at me. After a couple of times cranking it, the truck started. I went to leave work tonight and when I started the truck I noticed the little wrench icon was lit up. I go to pull out of the parking lot and the truck has no power. The boost gauge wouldn't go past the first little mark. No matter how much throttle I gave it, the truck wouldn't go.

The truck eventually got up to half boost, but there's still no power. Also the truck wouldn't shift if I had my foot down. I would have to let off the throttle for it to shift.

I know you guys know what's up with these things. I'm begging you for help. The truck only has 43,800 miles on it. I haven't put 4,000 miles on it. The truck is due for service at 44,250 miles. But could a fuel filter possibly cause all this?

Yes a fuel filter could cause that. If it is still under warranty, take it into Ford and have them pull the codes and fix the issue, (hopefully)

Okay, question from a maintenance rookie. Is the only filter on the truck the one under the hood or is there another one on the truck?

There are two fuel filters. One near the oil filter in the engine compartment and the water separator, which is driver's side frame rail in the middle of the driver's door. It has a yellow toggle on it, which is used to drain the water. You'll need an extension to remove that filter and you will get a diesel bath. How many miles are on your truck, did you notice any smoke?

43,800 miles on the odometer. No, there was no smoke. No matter how much throttle I gave it I couldn't see any smoke from idle to the floor.

I'm not a mechanic but maybe EGR valve/cooler. Mine ran like crap, smoked, picked up almost stalled and it turned out to be the EGR valve. Hopefully one of the experienced techs or other members would have a better idea. Hope it helps
