2000 Ford F350 Fuel pump replaced and gas guage not working right

I had tohave my 2000 Ford F350 Crew Cab towed on Christmas Eve by Triple A. The dealership was closed but the tow truck driver recommended a privat shop that he said did good work. They charged me $700.00 to change the fuel pump. When I picked up the truck the owner of the shop told me to watch the gas gauage and if it didn't operat correctlyto bring it back in. Indeed it did not work properly as it sat on empty. I filled the tank (38 gallons) twice to be sure it wouldn't correct but it didn't. I also noticed that my mileage remaining calculator kept showing about 170 mile left to go no matter how much gas was in it. Also the outside temperature guage showed the temp to be about 20 degress cooler than it actually was. I took the truck back to the shop and when I picked it up I went straight to a gas station and filled it up. The gas guage only would show just a hair above 1/2 a tank. I drove straight back to the shop and the owner assured me that it would slowly go up. I'm a nice guy and bought into it even though I knew somewhere deep down I would be back. So...before I take it back can anybody tell me what the poblem is, should I let this guy work on the truck again and did I get taken for a ride on the dollars? Appreciate any help you can give.

Is there a fuel filter for each tank on a 1997 F350 crew cab 4x4 with a 460

There should be one filter per tank. If there is start with changing the fuel filter in the front tank and if you are still having problems then your front fuel pump seems like it may be going out.

I have a ford f 350 crew cab with 460 engine. The problem is when turning on the ignition the fuel pump does not turn on. I manually pushed the relay in and the pump turns on. however the truck will not...

The pump may still be weak due to lack of power. Remove the relay and inspect the terminals to where it is attached. There may be corrosion or the relay may be bad. These issues may prevent the pump to work correctly. Otherwise it could be a weak pump.

Ford F350 Fuel pump replaced but fuel gauge shows 1/2 tank of gas

Has the repair guy 'monkeyed' around with your fuel pump? If the gas guage is in the tank like most of the nowadays trucks and he bent or done something wrong with the fuel pump when he had it out then I would say he should fix it the way it should be but it sounds like you were 'taken' for a 'ride' by that mechanic!

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas

The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.
