Question about Dodge D150
Truck has a frozen or air bubble in gas line. Truck fires but does not stay running
I'm assuming you got this fixed already but to prevent it from happening again keep fuel more than half tank and with every fill add a fuel additive that prevents freezing

Well, you need to check for spark and for fuel. To avoid wearing down your battery, I would put a charger or jumper cables on the battery as you do these tests.
You can test for spark this way. Pull a spark plug wire, and then insert either the end of a phillips screw driver or an old spark plug. Now, keeping your hands away from the metal, hold the screwdriver shaft very close but not touching an engine ground. Or, if you are using an old spark plug, touch the plug end to a ground. Be careful to have a very close gap to ground to avoid damaging your ignition system. Now have a helper turn the key to start the engine. If you see a spark jumping the gap of the spare plug or from the screwdriver shaft to the ground, then you know you have spark.
If you do have spark, then reattach the wire and try starting the engine again with a little starting fluid sprayed into the throttle body. If you don't have starting fluid you can also use a capful of pure alcohol or a very small anount of gasoline poured into the throttle body. Starting fluid is the safer bet. If the engine sputters and kicks over for a second, you know that the problem is fuel delivery to the throttle body, and it may be related to water in the lines (possible, but unlikely) or dirt and debris that clogged the filter from the low tank, or some other issue such as a bad fuel pump.
