2003 f250 powerstroke fuel cutout problem

hello all, i have a 2003 f250 powerstroke 6.0, i was driving today and suddenly the truck fell flat on its face, the engine went from running 2000 rmp to an idle and i still had the fuel pedal pushed down, so i pushed the pedal all the way to the floor and the engine speeded up, but only just a bit more then the idle, was enough to get me home though.
when this happens the glow plug light comes on for about 3 seconds then goes back off, the check engine light does not come on and all the other guages work fine.
it happened more later when i went back out to try it again, when this happens, i can take my foot off the accelerator pedal for a few seconds, then it seems to work fine, good spped and fast pickup, till it falls down again and has no throttle, then i can repeat, either push the pedal all the way to the floor to get enough speed to get home or take my foot off the pedal, and hope it resets and everything is ok till it happens again,,, seems to happen about every 5 minutes or about every mile.
any thoughts , 911 its my work transportation, gotta get it fixed quick

Thanks, Richie

I had the exact same problem with my 03. Was it very cold? because when it happened to me it was like 0 outside and im pretty sure the fuel was geling up. i swiched out the fuel filters and put some additive in and it ran fine.

it was 42 outside today, and i have drove the truck all day long, this problem just started happening this evening after i got back in the truck to come home from work, seems if it was the fuel gelling it would do it all the time, and not shut off all at once,,, seems if the fuel would gel, the truck would hesitate, shutter, and smoke, it does none of this, its like you turn the motor off while driving, but the engine goes to an idle and does not quit

after the truck does its spell, and seems to "reset" itself, it drives fine with plenty of power and runs normal, till it stalls again, the over the same routine again

sounds like fuel filter or fuel pump, something with fuel pressure
I would sure start with a fuel filter,
