2003 6.0 Died on road

I was driving home when I noticed the truck started to run like is was missing. I Ran the codes on my cts and I got a cam sensor code and 2 injector codes. While driving the truck lost a/c then power then just dies.Towed it home and hooked it up to the xgauge. Readings im getting from xgauge are....

FICM power 47.5-48.0 KOEO and while cranking.
FICM SYNC 1
IPR 14.8 KOEO, and gets up to 80 while cranking.
ICP 200 KOEO, gets up to 1800 while cranking.

I can hear the fuel pump buzzing with the injector chatter I removed my batteries to charge then when I ran the truck for codes again but I cant get none. I also took the belt of and tried starting it but no go. I recently did an oil and fuel filter change will all motorcraft parts. Batteries are 1 month old. All the readings im getting from the x gauge seems correct to me. Any help would be appreciated.

I forgot to add that I have oil pressure on my dash gauge after cranking for a few seconds.

Any smoking when your cranking on it? Does it even try to start? Do you have the lower fuel filter in the HFCM bottomed down? I've seen a lot of people not tighten it all the way and it will suck air and die.

Try pulling the upper filter out, then have someone key on for you and see if it fills the bowl up quickly. If it doesn't fill up quick or you have a bunch of air bubbles your sucking air somewhere. Check the lower filter then keep keying on till you get good fuel in the upper filter, put the filter back in and try starting it.

Btw all your other readings seem close, minus a little goofy on the KOEO ICP pressure but seems like it's building enough when cranking. That's why I'm saying fuel pressure issues. Probably why it threw injector codes and cam sensor codes. Cam sensor codes can log when it's missing real bad. Since the PCM doesn't monitor fuel pressure anywhere it can throw off a lot of people because of the other codes it will log as a result of low fuel pressure. If fuel seems fine the only other thing I'm thinking could be a biased ICP sensor. Try letting it sit with the key off for a while then recheck KOEO ICP pressure. Should be right around 0.

Justin thank you for the replies. Sorry to get back and reply so late. I was helping my brother move all weekend. That is why I posted in the 911 section. I needed my truck to help him move, but we just rented a uhaul instead.

No smoke while cranking. It cranks but just wont turn over. There was a time when I was cranking and it sounded and felt like it was going to start but stopped and I just kept cranking it hoping it would start. As for checking for air in the fuel I will try that out later today and report back to you what I find.

I opened up the fuel filter housing inside the engine then turned the key on, there were little bubbles that came out at first but they went away. There were large bubbles that looked like they were draining out the back of the housing. but the whole time the pump was going it was bubbling. Is that normal?

LMFAO, I added 5 gallons and it started up. My gauge read that I had a quarter left. Thanks for the help Justin.

No problem man! Glad you got it running. I would've replied sooner but was away for the week.

Has it ever done this before at a quarter tank?

I've seen the pickup screen fall of the pickup tube before and that will cause them to run out of fuel around an 1/8th tank. I'd still double check your lower filter and make sure you got that cap bottomed out.

First time that this has happened to me. When I added the 5 gallons the gauge just went up a little about the lowest line. I don't know why. The lower filter is bottomed out. Do you think air could of gotten into the system?

no on the air
it would purge very fast
you are right you ran out of fuel
figure out why because a 6.0 hates running out of fuel the injectors depend on the liquid to cushion the injection cycle

the foot on the pickup is common and so is the bypass fitting on the same pickup foot
