Question 05 F350 - Truck Quit, Need Help!

Just purchase 2 months ago has 56,500m. Had all filters replaced, dealer cleaned turbo and egr. Had been running great. All of a sudden it began to hesitate when throttling. Then when I came to a stop it had a surging idle.
Have been using a hypertech max energy programmer, set on #1.
After experiencing these problems I returned to factory settings.
Still same problem, no DTC's. Cranked 'er up to road test got about 1 mile came to stop sign and she just quit. Like the fuel just shut-off. Won't even try to fire off. Batteries were weak, ran down real quick. Ran a scan but still no DTC's.
It has been a little slow to crank, but dealer said all is ok when in shop last month. Has improved with fuel additive.

Any help sure would be appreciated before I have to call the tow truck.
I still have 3500 mles of warranty, but would hate to tow to dealer for something not covered or simple enough to repair at home.

Thanks

sounds like maybe the fuel injector control module or injection control pressure sensor. They don't always throw codes. How long since your last oil change? What kind of oil are you using? By the way welcome to the ORG.

Thanks for the welcome and the response.
Just changed the oil about 100 miles back. Using Motocraft.

Try pulling changing the fuel filter again. Maybe you got some bad fuel and there is water in it.

I'll give it a try. Should I change both? It has one under on the rail and one on top.

If you can get to both then change both. My one on the frame rail requires special tools from ford i guess. There is some weird clip. I need to change mine out too, now that i think about it.

I just did a little research on mine and i think i only have the 1 filter, the black thing on my rail must be the pump. I have never seen wires going to it though. Oh well. I checked on yours too and it looks like ford was charging $170 to replace the one on the frame rail. Labor alone was $130, so it must require a special tool.

Nope, no special tool, just a 36mm socket or a large oil filter wrench. I wouldn't think it would be water in the fuel, though. It's much more likely something else. Since you still have a warranty, get it towed to Ford. They have all the diagnostic equipment to figure out what's going wrong and you will just be throwing parts at the problem. Good luck.

***Edit: since it is an 05, if it has never been replaced, it is likely the STC fitting on the HPOP.***
