It's possible that the fuel pump relay or fuse has failed. Look for any oil leaks before blaming the engine for low oil. Hope this helps!

My 2000 F250 diesel will run be running just great, then all of a sudden it will shut itself off going down the road. I thought I had a fuel issue so I changed the fuel filter to be sure. It ran fine

So is the problem still there? and if so it may be the fuel pump going bad. Have a pressure test done on it to find out if pump is weak...Common problem when they shut off like that...hope i unerstood your problem correctly and good luck..if this info helps then Please rate my post..

I have a 2002 f 250 superduty turbo diesel if I prime it a few time I can get it started but it won't run long fuses and relays were good I found the fuel regulator was bad replaced that but it's still...

A good way you can test to see if the fuel pump is bad is to leave your fuel filter cap screwed down just enough to hold the cap in place and turn the key on inside the truck this will prime the filter housing. If the fuel doesnt overflow from underneath the cap then most likely it is your pump.

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road

fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump

It is most likely fuel heater in bottom of filter housing. Unplug it on backside of housing and reinstall good fuse and see if it quits blowing. If so, updated fuel heater availible through Ford.
