Question about 2006 Ford F 350 Super Duty
FORD 6 LITER WILL START AND RUN FOR A A WILE THEN STARVES FOR FUEL AND SHUTS DOWN I HAVE ALREADY CHANGED BOTH FUEL FILTERS AND CHECKED EXAUST SYSTEM
SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition wont start
On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

I found the problem with my 2006 F350. It did not idle very smoothly, vibrated at 45 to 60 mph, and got poor milage. I brought it in and found the issue under warrantee. I had five of eight injectors bad. No wonder it was running bad.

It really depends on the rear axle you have in your truck because there are actually 3 different ones but all of them you remove the rear cover,then clean it and add a bead of silicone rubber to the cover and reinstall and refill.Here is where the difference comes in as to how fluid much to add. The fill plugs are in different places, one is at the front near where drive shaft hooks up, this one you fill to within 1/4 of the plug openning. The other one is in the rear cover and you fill it to bottom of the hole.

first you gotta find it underneath. its a metal cylinder shaped with two lines going to it, in and out. it is usually held by a big clip to the frame.usually on drivers side between gas tanks and engine. then go to the auto parts store and tell them them yearmake model, and get the gas line removal tool that will fit . unscrew the gas cap so it depressurizes.undo the clips first, then use the tool to slide the lines off the filter each side. a little fuel will leak out so be prepared. then simply put the new filter in the holder and push the lines back . make sure the filter is on the right way, it has an arrow to show flow.

Ok, lets take this from the top. I have a 97 f250 diesel. In mid may mine did the same thing. It's either one of two things. You have under valve cover harnesses (uvc). They slide in under your valve covers, you will see two wiring harnesses on the outside of the valve cover gaskets on either side of the block. Ok, it IS possible one of these slipped out of place and killed two of your injectors, causing the horrible running/ low idle/no power/ sounds like the truck is going to stall symptoms. The easiest way to check that is to unplug the wires while the truck is running and see if it kills the engine, if it doesen't unplug the other one on the same side of the valve cover. If both of these don't cause any change then you have a bigger problem, the IDM (Injector drive module).
FAIR WARNING: When you unplug the wires with the truck on it is extremely dangerous, it is 110 volt feed. It can kill you.
OK, the IDM is a silver box, 8"x10" approx dimensions, located on the driver side under the hood, over top the front tire. If you take the wires you unplugged and take a multi meter to them and they are dead, you have a bad IDM. This was the case with my truck. Ford designed the IDM to have a hole in the side to allow condensation to escape from it, unfortunately, this allows water inside and will short out resistors and practically kill half of your engine. Buy a new IDM on ebay for about $380. It takes 5 minuts to put it in.
I hope this helps you out man.

i have a 07 v6 as well, and the electronic throttle control light came on after extreme change in weather, warm to cold. Restarted the car later in the evening and no light.
