Rough running, Chugging Engine

I had the fuel bowl replaced on my 2001 f250 two days ago. Since it was replaced the truck hasn't started on the first try but about once. Then today I go to leave work and the truck makes it to the end of the drive and starts loosing power and sound like a gas engine with water in the gas. I drained the fuel bowl and cranked it back up and it ran fine for about five minutes then it did it again. So I drained it one more time and hammered it down for about a mile. It has done it since but the truck is very sluggish and sounds like it is missing. Does anyone have any ideas.

Right after I posted last I was on my way home and the truck started it again acting like it wasn't getting any fuel. I tried draining the fuel bowl again. The truck cranked back made it 1/4 mile and it happened again. So I drained it one more time and nursed it into a parking lot. There it died and would not crank back. I had it towed home. I was gone on my honeymoon so I had the same guy work on it. He checked all the fittings on the new bowl and they were all good. He took the fuel lines loose and they had fuel in them. Then he checked the pump it had some fuel in it but it wouldn't pickup any fuel. So he replaced the fuel pump. It cranked fine for him numerous times. I drove the truck all day yesterday and did fine. Then I got in it and started to work tonight and it started loosing power again and chugging. Luckly I was only about 100 yards from my house and got it back there. Once I got it back in the driveway on level ground it started running like a champ again. I was scared to chance it again so I had the wife to bring me to work. Any one have any ideas?

Judging from your first post, I'd say put a new fuel filter in it and get your fuel from a different station.

The fuel filter has only been in for about two weeks and probably doesn't have two hundred miles on it. I am going to put some injector cleaning in it once I can get it to a fueling station to fill up.

Did he measure the psi before replacing the electric fuel pump? ( Below 30-80 psi check for a stuck reg. valve, most commonly caused by debris) Did he also check the fuel regulator valve? If the valve is open then you will have low fuel pressure, if the valve is stuck closed it will cause high fuel pressure and cause the pump to fail again....
