The fuel filter is located just after the gas tank at the back. The filter is fitted to tube with standard tube fittings. You may also want to check the vent of your tank. You may just be having a plugged tank vent.

Fuel-injected cars often experience clogs in the oil filter. This is especially a problem for cars that are filled up with low-quality gas and cars that have recently run out of gas. Try adding a fuel injector cleaner and filling up with premium gas for a couple weeks. In addition, check to see if the fuel injectors are functioning properly, and make sure the fuel pressure is within normal range.
For cars with carburetors, check the fuel pump. This is an essential part for fuel delivery, so it is the first thing to check when a car is hesitating during acceleration. It's also possible that the car is hesitating when accelerating because the carburetor is failing.
If the problem persists, have the spark plugs tested to see if there is a malfunction. Also inspect the wiring for frayed edges. Other things to check include the air filter, fuel filter, timing and gas leaks.

89 7.3 IDI Diesel won't run.

The fuel filter light comes on to tell you that there is Water In The Fuel tank at a level high enough to be picked up by the fuel pump. Your problem is a fuel delivery system that is full of water. Drop the tank and clean it out first. There is a very specific procedure for replenishing the fuel system with good fuel. The best thing to do is pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, Part #10330 as it outlines the procedure. However, if you are unable to get the book reply in the comment section and I can type it out for you. It requires 14 steps.
While you are doing this it would be a good idea to also replace any and all rubber pieces of fuel line. They have been known to collapse over time, when the pump comes on. Make sure you get fuel line that is diesel specific, regular gas line won't work. You mentioned replacing the injector pump so it will need to be taken to a diesel shop to be re-timed. Timing involves tools that are expensive and not normally accessable bu you and I.
The Hanes manual is an excellent investment at about $22. It provides excellent repair procedures for your engine as well as some service up-dates and shortcuts.

I have a 95 geo tracker fires right up then dies within 5 secs will run on either it's like it's not getting gas but the fuel pump works just changed the filter old one when i drained it the fuel looked...

when was the last time, it was a daily driver a DD.
1 week, year, 1 decade ago, i???????????

this is common. and for sure very old cars like this.
ever do the 60k mile tuneup,
runs on test fuel , aka :Ether.

Just because a fuel pump buzzes, means little, very little.

the filter drained clay, well that is bad fuel.
try pumping tank fuel to a clear mayo jar and let it sit.
not clear amber, water bubbes, red rust, dirt ,slime, or even red alge? BINGO

you might check that the injectors are firing, with a NOID lamp.
I bet they are and are packed
the injectors have screens, 10 Microns in size
no , they dont come out, a pro injector shop ,back flushes them
no small task, but is $19 each,. ASK.
stalls or dies. always , forever.

What parts do I need for 91 F150 xlt 5.0. Tune up! My X, put power steering fluid in my gas, thought it was the fuel injection cleaner I bought at same time! I have put several treatments & have ran it...

You could try another fuel filter and some heavy duty injector cleaner. A garage would use a product that hooks into the fuel line and skips the gas tank to clean the injectors. The PS fluid could have also gummed up the fuel pump in the tank.

When u push on the gas it spits and sputters, it ran out of gas like 2 weeks ago and yes sometimes i do let it run low on gas. It spits and sputters when i turn a corner or go up a hill

Could be a clogged fuel filter, and or dirty fuel injectors. Try running some strong injector cleaner through it. It may take 2 or 3 times before it cleans the injectors out fully.

I have a 97 f350 with 7.3l diesel. im driving down the road and check engine light comes on and has a loss of power. i shut truck off and then restart and light is out and runs fine for a little while then...

It sounds like a loss of fuel pressure caused by a clogged fuel filter. Replacing the filter in the engine compartment should solve your problem. but if continues or comes back within a week or two it could mwan that the mesh filter on the pick-up pipe in the fuel tank is also clogged and requires cleaning due to picking up a batch of dirty fuel. If the fuel tank filter is clogged then it would py to drain and flush the tank to remove any impurities to prevent the problem recurring.
