Starting issue

I just changed out the connection at the base of my 99 f350's, 7.3 filter housing. when I completed this, the truck started fine. I had my wife pull it out of the garage, turn it around and start to bring it back in. While i was sweeping the floor dry out of the way and waiting for her to bring the truck in, it started to idle rough. I had her shut it off. We then added about 5 gallons of fuel to it becuase it appeared to be rather low on the fuel gauge. I started it back up it ran worse till it quit. I have been unsuccessful in any further restarts. Any thoughts?

Still nothing

Thanks for the idea, I didn't know about the breaker. Checked it out but I'm still in the same spot. I have had a diesel powered truck of some sort for almost 20 years. this problem really leaves me baffled. Have tried to start and noticed that I have some white smoke coming from the exhaust pipe. These leaves me to think that i have fuel? Any more thoughts?

how about your fuses...something could have cause one or two or the whole power distro box to blow . No seriously it could be a fuse but also take into account that if you ran the truck on an emply tank you could have smoked the fuel pump...its on the frame rail drivers side...i think have your wife get in there and turn the key while you get under there and see if you are getting power down to the pump. Are there any codes that came up. Those might help us help you a bit better. BUt yeah the inertia switch which is that fuel shut off circuit breaker is right where it was previously stated but it has to be down when you stick your finger in that little hole.

It may be a shorted fuel heater?
