My 1 Million Dollar ?

The other day I was driving my 99 F350 SD (7.3L of course) and it was low on fuel. I took it up a hill and it stalled. I shut it off and put some fuel in the tank and turned it on again. It started but stalled shortly their after. I havent been able to get it started since. Today I took the fuel line off the outtake of the pump and the pump is definitely pushing fuel. However, when I observe the fuel filter housing it appears that no fuel is coming in from the pump or out to the cylinders. I am struggling with what to do/check from here. The fuel filter is not gunked up at all so I dont think that there was a bunch of sediment pushed up that far. Could it be clogged below that? How should I go about fixing that? How would I get air bubbles out of that line? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Put it back together and cycle the key several times, should start and run.

If it doesnt may have just been a coincidence that it was low on fuel, and the infamous cps is out.

I just basically had the same thing happen with mine. I have a 1999 F250 and it was low on fuel and started acting funny. I put fuel in it and the water in fuel light came on. I was able to drive it for about 18 miles to a friends house and then it died there. I had low fuel pressure (10 pounds) after the pump and air bubbles in the line. I changed the fuel filter, fuel pump, dropped the tank and cleaned it out, checked the HPOP for oil, checked all fuses and no luck at all. I am confused. I dont know where to look next. Wish I could help. Good Luck!!

The dealer changed my cps back in december because of the recall. Do you still think that is a possibility?

No, the new part # seems to fix the cps, sounds like you need to bleed the fuel lines.

These trucks should not need to be bled. They bleed themselves if you cycle the key a few times.

How much fuel did you put in? You need to put in at least 10 gallons and run it to get the air out of the system.

It only has about 5 gallons of fuel in it, but like I said the pump is definitely pushing fuel... what would the purpose of more fuel be? pressure head?
