Bought a 92 F250 7.3 5 speed with 146000 miles.
Used very little past 5 yrs. Drove it home 260 miles. Last 40 miles wanted to die at stop signs or when I let off the accelerator completely.. Got home. Won't start. Fuel filter?

Possibly. On the filter housing there is a schrader valve. While cranking the engine, depress the little plunger and see it there is any fuel coming out. Then crack one of the injector lines loose and see if there is any fuel there. If there isn't any fuel at the schrader valve take the filter inlet loose and see if there is anything there If there is a lower flow at the schrader valve than at the inlet, then you might need to replace the filter. If there is nothing or very little at the filter inlet then check your tank level if it's below 1/4 tank put some in and try again, expecting to have to prime everything. These old trucks are bad about breaking the fuel strainer off in the tank, causing it to not pick up the last 1/4 tank.

Thanks, plenty of fuel at the schrader valve. Both fuel tanks are full. Reading the owners manual it says to push accelerator to the floor along with the clutch. I didn't push the accelerator to the floor. Hope that is all there is to get it running .
