Yes that is possible. Did you try and hook up lines together that go into the valve to see if it would run. Also check to see if there is fuel to injectors.

Backfiring is not going to have anything to do with the level of fuel in the tank. You most likely have burned valves or broken valve springs in your engine. I would do a compression test.

Diesel engines are super finicky about clean fuel. Speaking of that I'm going to assume when you said "gas" you meant diesel fuel, gas is really bad for diesel engines. Is it possible someone mis-fueled it. The other thing that will make a diesel not want to start is air in the fuel, or water contamination. It is possible to draw air in with out having fuel leak out. The most common place for this is at the filter. Has there been any recent service work done? Is it possible the the cap on the fuel filter is not all the way tight or the o-ring seal is torn. Since it ran fine before and there was no catastrophic noises I am going to be looking for a fuel delivery or fuel contamination. Another posibility is are you using a biodiesel? This stuff does not like cold weather, in fact if you are somwhere where it gets really cold, regular #2 diesel will gell at sub zero temps. It could be you got some bad fuel.

The most likley cause of this problem is the tank to tank switching valve. To check this, simply turn the key on, do not start the vehicle, And have someone switch the tanks back and forth. You should be able to hear and or feel the valve moving. It is located about half way down the inside of the drivers side frame piece.

High external temperature causes engine to die

Sounds like your ECT (engine coolant temp.) sensor has gone bad. What happens is when the truck is cold, the ECT acts like a choke on a carb. When the truck gets to operating temperature, the ECT tells the computer that it doesn't need the little extra fuel anymore. What's happening with your is the ECT isn't telling the computer that the engine is at operating temp. It's acting like the choke on the carb. is stuck shut. The computer is being told the engine temp is at 40 below still.

no it wont but a cloged fuel filter will increase the pressure from tank to filter and overload the amperage in fuel pump and posibly burnt fuse also check for bad engine mounts if engine moves while is under load it might contact some wires and burnt fuse
