6.0 fuel

I broke down today. Truck would not start. Knew that I got some h20 in the fuel.. I replaced the fuel filters. Vehicle will not prime. Checked the voltage to the pump, 4.99 v. Checked fuses, appear good. Any insights? I use the truck daily for work. I just started going to bio, John

using bio.....there is a chance your fuel is gelling depending on how cold it is there....

and what you checked voltage for was probably the water in fuel sensor not the pump. the pump is a 12 volt pump.....but the sensor just uses a 5 volt signal....

that pump needs 12V to it. Either you have a bad pump and you tested the wrong wire.....or you have a wiring or relay problem then....

Should I install a heavier duty pump. Or install some type of after market.. or am I trying to reinvent the wheel. That fuel filter is a hassle to get to. I had thought about putting a different fuel filter assembly in , Any thoughts
