My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. If all you did was change the filters, you are getting air into the system at one of the filters or the filters are wrong. Were the filters OEM Motorcraft filters? Aftermarket filters are a slight shorter and will cause this issue as well. They are not long enough to press the check ball. If OEM was used, remove the filters, put a slight dab of petroleum jelly on the o-rings (this keeps them from twisting and folding to allow air in, and put the filter back on. Do this for both the one under the truck on the frame rail and the one under the hood. The turn the key on and off 3-4 times so the fuel pump can prime the filter, and then crank. It should then take and then let the vehicle run at idle for at least 2 minutes to purge the remaining air out. Sometimes the vehicle will die, but you will have to start it again and let it idle. Let me know how this turns out. If there is no other issues, you should be idling in no time. Just don't crank the starter for more than 25 seconds at a time per minute or you will burn it up. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
