2001 F250 v10, This problem has got me stumpped

Does anyone have any suggestions? I Drove my pickup to work, it fired up just fine. When I started it up to head home, it sounded sluggish, but ran. About 3 miles down the road it shut off. Ended up getting towed. I've replaced the fuel filter and treated the lines with seafoam however it didnt fix it. the fuel pump whines when the key is in the on postion, and my pickup tries to turn over, its as if its not getting fuel. Help me please!!!

Have you check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail? This will tell you if the fuel pump is dead (most likely issue).

thanks for the reply monster 4, and this is probably a dumb question, but how do you check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail?

Get a fuel pressure gauge and hook It up to the schrader valve on the fuel rail. It will have a black cap that looks like a valve stem cap. Tell us what the pressure is

What he said. You should have 28-30 psi at idle (also think it's the same for KOEO) and 38-40 at WOT.

SGII cannot read fuel pressure. There is no factory sensor.
