Truck won't start

I have a 1995 ford f350 and the fuel filter light came on . The truck started to lose power then just died and now won't start. I already changed fuel filter and fuel pump .... Help !

Fuel filter light? Water in fuel light maybe?
Will it crank fine? Does the WTS light come on?

I've never seen the fuel filter light. Must be an OBS thing.
When you changed the fuel filter, did you get the air out of the system? Maybe that's all it is.

So what exactly did you do, cause I have no idea.
You changed pump and filter, started it, it ran, then died?

I changed the fuel pumped changed the fuel bowl with the filter also.and the truck ran fine for about a month. Then the fuel filter light would come on every now and then and the truck would lose power and then turn off . It's like if there is restriction in the fuel.

Oh ok. I gotcha now.
I'd check the FPR screen. It might be clogged up. There's a write up on here how to do that.

the light came on then truck died? Maybe you're getting a lot of crud coming up from the tank? If you have air in the lines you'll just have to crank it out. Do you refill the bowl when you out a new filter in?
