2000 outta fuel?

I have a 2000 psd with intake, exhaust, and TS 6 position chip. My problem is that at idle my truck sounds like its running out of fuel. This only happens sometimes, not all the time. I replaced the fuel filter about 15000 miles ago, is it time to change it again?

have you checked for codes?
if you have, and none were present, throw a fuel pressure gauge on it and see where you're at

Running outta fuel can actually be running out of fuel, fuel pressure, injector control pressure, or electrical firing of the injectors. So kinda need more info to narrow it down.

Re: 2000 outta fuel?

I replace my fuel filter every service because what you don't realize it that filter has hundreds if gallons of fuel running through it in a 5000 mile interval. The oil filter only has 4 gallons to filter.

That oil filter also filters hundreds of gallons of oil too.

How do you figure that? Unless the truck leaks oil or consumes it .

So your ideology is the oil filters thru once and never comes back thru ? The oil is continually getting dirty and running thru over and over again so therefore in your oil change interval the oil filter IS filtering hundreds of gallon a oil as well.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

i think you've got it the wrong way around here, bud. fuel is continually renewed. while the oil is recycled throughout
