    Does the truck turn over at all?
    If it does, does it try to start at all?
    Have you checked whether the fuel is actually getting to the fuel rack at the manifold?
    One other thing which could shut down the fuel system is the impact surge protect switch, which is on the passenger side kick panel.
    This unit shuts the fuel down in the event of a hard impact or extremely hard stop.
    It is meant as a safety device but sometimes they get a bit sketchy.
    You may want to check this switch.

Started 6 months ago - ran out of gas at 1/4 tank, figured gage was bad, added gas no problem. Now runs out of fuel at any level afterr it warms up. Changed out fuel pump on frame rail, fuel filter, coil,...

do a check on the fuel pump in the gas tank, else replace a section of fuel line near the throttle body with a clear plastic line, if yu see any air bubble that is your problem, then its a problem of where the air is getting in, a fuel line can leak air in with no fuel leaking out, connect a fuel guage to the system and monitor it at different speeds, could be the pressure valve is faulty, just giving you a few things else to check

The in-tank fuel pump may not be working however I would check and make sure you have power to the pump before just replacing it.Iyou don't have power at the pump then check the inertia switch and if that's doesn't have power check to see if the fuel pump relay is powering up the pump and repair as needed

My 80 ford f150 v8 302 wont start up i

if this is a 1980 F150, emissionwiz is correct in saying it has a carburetor, if your engine runs on ether, you do not have fuel supply to the engine. Check fuel delivery at the front of carburetor, should be a line screwed into the carb, may be connected by a rubber hose, remove this line and crank engine, look to see fuel is gushing out of the line, if no fuel the pump is bad, check fuel lines back to pump for leaks, replace leaking lines if necessary. If you get fuel then your float inside the carb is stuck, and the carb will need some attention, hope this helps, let me know
