Question about 2000 Ford Expedition
If i turned the key on shouldn't i have gas coming to the fuel filter?
If you've changed the filter by yourself, it's possible that you could have forgotten to enable the fuel pump, which you had to turn off before changing the fuel filter. (If I remember correctly) It's on the passenger side up near the suspension on/off switch, but on the side of the vehicle, not towards the front where the suspension switch is. Best of luck.

SOURCE: not getting gas
Disconnect the fuel line at the filter, wrap in cloth and put a jar over it. Activate the fuel pump and see if there is flow. Just because the fuel pump whines does not mean it is pumping fuel. I have seen the impellers and seals fail but the motor work, especially after running out of gas when ethanol enhanced gas was used. If there is flow, Follow the lines up to the engine, paying close attention to the jacking areas. I have seen garages crush fuel lines under the car with their floor jacks. If that's all OK, locate the rubber section of the return line between the engine and firewall. Working from underneath, up, it's the second largest line under the car. Pinch off the rubber line and try starting the car. If it starts and runs, replace the fuel pressure regulator which is stuck open.
