Ran out of Fuel - now has problems

My son ran my 2000 stock F250 low on fuel until it starting missing. We added some fuel and the truck started right up, but ran rough and smoked. After that it cleared up and ran fine. The next morning it started up okay, but after about a 1/2 mile it started running bad and smoking it eventually quit. After about 5 - 10 minutes of trying it did eventually start, but ran rough and smoked. Again it cleared up and ran fine the rest of the day. I changed the fuel filter thinking that it had trash in it. Now everytime that it sits for an extended period of time it starts right up but does the same thing. Any suggestions on what could cause this?

You might want to check the fuel header screen. On the drivers side of the fuel filter housing is the fuel header. Their are 2 (IIRC) 7/16 bolts. Take those off and gently pull the header away from the side of the fuel filter housing. On the side of the header you'll see a white plug with a green o-ring around it. On the end of that white plug is a screen which will probably be clogged with gunk. Wipe it off with the side of a toothpick and make sure it's all clean.(Don't poke the screen). I almost forgot drain some of the fuel out of the filter housing so it doesn't pour out the hole when you disconnect the header. Good Luck, hopefully this will help some.

Still a problem

After looking at some of the other threads I decided to drop the tank and check the screens in the tank. The screens were clean, so after putting it back together the problem is still there. Could I have an injector problem?
