empty fuel bowl after driving 5 min! fuel pump?

driving down the road light throttle it will run alright till i give it some gas, it will slowly lose rpm and then the gas pedal has no effect on the engine revving. then it will run on what seams like 1 cylinder. so i shut it off and try to start it. it sputters for like 20 sec and then it will like a normal truck. this is blowing my mind!!! it has a brand new fuel filter in it also. (autozone brand) WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE FUEL BOWL TO DRAIN>!?

sounds like you left a gap when you changed the fuel filter

try taking the top off and make sure you didn't crossthred

if you did then it would let some air in and it would make the truck run bad

im pretty sure that i didnt cross thread it, it sits on there flush, i was reading on the site that the filter presses something down in the housing that allows the fuel to come in the bowl, is that right??

yea it came w/ a gasket, but it also came with a new top and the filter was attached to it, but when i removed the top today the filter wasn't attached to the top any more. im kind of doubting the filter is bad though.

correct me if i am wrong but is there something that needs to be pressed down by the filter in order for fuel to get into the bowl>? and no i do not believe that it is leaking... i opened my water seperator so many times everything smells like diesel~lol

i dont believe so, i could be wrong. i think you can pull the filter and have someone crank it over and see if the bowl is beign fed fuel... someone correct me if im wrong.

if im right, try it. if it doesnt fill you like have a bad pump, or clogged line. most likely a bad pump. but we had a guy here a couple months back that bought a truck that had mud in the fuel system. not pretty. and not common.

Mine did that when the lift pump (fuel pump) went bad, it leaked a little diesel through the lift pump weep holes.
