friends truck is down needs all the help he can get

He has a 2002 powerstroke that he's owned about 2-weeks and put about 2000 miles on. He was just running along at 45 mph when it shut off. It restarted but would only run about a block and shutoff again. He changed the fuel fitler, but no help. Then he found the water seperator drain valve and thinks he got the water out the first couple times he tried draining it, but even though there doesn't appear to be any more water coming out of it, it still won't run over 2-3 minutes. I know he changed the filter before finding the drain, but anything else you can think of he really needs some help quick=====please!

There are two filters. One at the frame rail where you drain water. the other one is at the engine beside oil filter. Fill with clean fuel when re-installing. Good Luck!!

Yeah on the 7.3's there should be 1 filter on top. It could be the CPS though.
