engine killing

i have a 99 7.3 with a lot of miles. two days ago it suddenly killed on me and would not start. towed it off the interstate with a skid truck. the minute it was off loaded it startrd. changed the cam sensor and took off again. about 20 miles down the road it killed again and would not start. towed it off the interstate with a wheel lift backwards and again as soon as it wsas put on the ground it started no problem, i thought that maybe something had been sloshing around it the tank and everytime i put it on the wrecker the motion cleared the blockage. pulled the bed and drained the tank. nothing in the tank. changed the fuel pump and thought i had the problem licked. got about 100 miles from home and it killed three times in a lowes parking lot when i was trying to park. went in shopped came out it started and i drove it to a friends about 2 miles away with no problem. it starts everytime but i'm afraid to take it on the interstate to get it home. wrecker truck fees are starting to add up. ANY IDEAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE HELP
had engine put on computer and no codes

Check your fuel/water separator housing. More than likely there will be gunk underneath the hearing element clogging the fuel outlet lines. Fix: take out the separator, take out heater element, clean any and every orifice you can find, put new filter in, and it should fire up and give you no trouble. My truck just did the same thing, Water in Fuel light and CEL on but not long enough to pull codes. And when they say change your fuel filter every 10k, do it. I never did that and it came back to bite me in the a$$.

Do you mean the chamber that holds the fuel filter? I changed the filter yesterday, but did not drain the bowl. It still acted like it was going to die at the red light today.

Cleaned the fuel bowl out, and changed the cps out. I cracked three 10mm sockets in the process, even the Craftsman! Got it done though, so far so good!! Thanks for all of the help
