Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
There are two ways to do this. One, would be to drop the tank. If the tank is full then I would remove the bed. If it is empty then dropping the tank would be easier.
To remove the bed you disconnect the tail lights, tag light, and fuel hose. then, with one person on each side, pick up the bed and set it on the rear wheels and bumper. Then you will be able to access the fuel pump which is screwed into the top of the tank. It will have a lock on it that requires a specialized tool. If you dont have it I used a flat head screwdriver and tapped on it with a hammer.

There is a special tool used to disconnect the lines from the fuel filter. You should be able to get them at any local automotive shop, i.e., Pepboys, Autozone, Chief Auto. It should be relatively cheap to buy this tool.

get a code reader like the Actron CP9015 Code Scanner, 20 dollars and will flash codes. if it will not diagnose itself, the ecm must be replaced. this fixed my dads truck with the same problem

Did you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?
The fuel pump is powered :
the fuse to the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump relay to the fuel inertia switch
The fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump itself.
At the fuel inertia switch in the kick panel, power from the relay is the Dark Green w/ Yellow stripe wire and the pink w/ black stripe wire is the power. from the fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump.
If you jumper the fuel pump relay, you should hear it run. If not pull the fuel pump relay, and check the pins in the relay socket, pin 30 should be the power from the fuse.
If you have power at pin #30, jumper the relay socket as shown with the red line above, and check the dark green w/ yellow stripe wire at the fuel inertia switch for power.
Press the button on the top of the fuel inertia switch, and check for power leaving the fuel inertia switch on the pink w/ black stripe wire.
This is tests good, check for power at the fuel pump, same pink w/ black stripe wire.
Fuel inertia switch info is in the owners manual, If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :
