It might mean you waited to long before replacing the fuel filter.I have seen pumps die after filter changes, only because the pump was allready damged by the filter being plugged and overheating the pump too many times,
Also, maybe the filter was installed bacwards and the media caved in and plugged the outlet. Just a thought.
My Triton runs sweet and it has 185,000 miles on it. Of course i maintain it.
Ford chevy whatever, they all get crappy if you dont take care of them.
Here is a pic, and last picture bump.

I was thinking along the same lines.
"Why was the fuel filter changed to begin with?"

I guess it's human nature to hope / assume that the cheapest fix is the best fix.

PS.
Also agree with the "They're ALL junk when they don't run" philosophy.

Also someone may have twisted or kinked a line or damaged one of the fittings.
Also don't assume it is a fuel problem. Put a gauge on it and check the pressure to be sure. Assumptions can cost a lot of time and money

I'd check direction as mentioned as well as if the fuel pump is running. Go with easy first.
