HELP truck wont start

i own a 97 ford f250 7.3l diesel while driving the fuel filter light came on, and the engine started running rough, then started losing power, when pressing the gas pedal no acceleration, then stalls and will not start.

To add to that courteously, is there diesel in the tank?
Next thing, is fuel in the bowl.
Next, just go ahead and replace filter, drain water out.
Then you'll find out if your fuel pump is pumping or not.

You should also try switching fuel tanks (assuming there is fuel in it). Cheers!

I had the same thing happen to me with my 95 f350 diesel.....Happened on highway...Come to find out it was the solnoid sensor was smoked....

Also if it is still running rough, check the camshaft position sensor, berimetric sensor and back pressure sensor....

After I replaced the solnoid it would start when it wanted to so, come to find out the biggest thing was the camshaft sensor was way off...

Hope this helps, Let me know how things go.....

If it triggered that light, more than likely something got sucked up into the filter housing and clogged it. I would swap the filter, make sure there is fuel in the tank and make sure there is no water in the housing.
