6.0 Ran low on fuel Now won't start

Hey Guys,
I have an 06 6.0 and the other day I was hauling horses and was in a area that had no fuel so I end up at 3 mile to empty when I finally got to a station. It was starting to sputter a little. I filled up and it started right up and ran great for 25 miles. It acted like it lost power for a second and then straighten up. Then about a mile later it was like you turned the key off. And will not start back up. Going to start with fuel filters but does anyone else have any input. Thanks in advance

Any codes? Ive seen people run out of fuel and ruin injectors on these. Did you cycle the key a few times to get any air out?

Check your fuel filter for crud. Running that low you may have sucked some crap out of the bottom of the tank.

after filter change cycle the key a few times with the top filter loose to get the air out of the lines.

there is a pretty fine screen in the bottom of the tank to keep that from happening and the pick up foot is supposed to be on the bottom of the tank

and those little ridges you see help as a pre filter for the screen
so if anything gets by it will be fine sediment or water

so agreed start with draining the water separator and doing filters
if no go test the fuel psi at the test port on the regulator

you sure you got diesel fuel ?? and I hope it's not injector damage as they depend on fuel being present to cushion the injection cycle

Hopefully this clears up with the filters being changed out. Not sure where you got your fuel from but it you got it from a rink a dink gas station way out in the boonies you may have got some bad fuel.

Ok started to change filters and started with the top one. Fuel bowl was full when I took the cap off. pulled the filter out and cycled the key to see if I was getting fuel. I have lots of fuel. It over flowed the bowl. Put the new filter in and decided to try it again. Cycled it a couple time still no start
