6.0 in trouble

On my way home today I ran the truck low on fuel and it started sputering. So I get it into the gas station and fill it up and its still limping on my way home. Get to the house change the oil and fuel filter/water seperator. Now the strange part it doesnt want to start and when it does its a really ruff idle.
And when i took it out on the road thinking that there was maybe air in my fuel lines it died after about 3 miles and had to crank for about 10 mins to get it to fire back up but when it did it started belching white smoke and when dirving it holds onto the gear like its in tow haul mod and wont shift wont rev out and when it does rev out its all or nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

sounds like air to me. Loosen the rear head fuel rail plugs and purge it.

cycle ignition from off to run 4 or 5 times letting fuel pump cycle. if you've got any air in the lines making you loose vaume that'll fix it. other than that recheck filters for proper instalation and seal.. after that im lost.

The air has no where to go so i don't see how this would get it out?
It has to be purged out through an open line and the rear fuel rails is the end of the line so that is the best place to purge it.

Are the fuel rail plugs on the back side of the heads? And once removed do they have to be locktiteed back?

I always cycle the key 4 to 5 times after I change filters and never a problem. Take the cap off the top fuel filter and make sure fuel is getting, in at all. Ive seen pumps burn up because of air in the lines before.
