I believe the fuel filter light is your water in fuel light. It either has water in your fuel or it thinks there is have you checked the sensor, or drained the fuel bowl

Re: 1994.5 PSD fuel filter light on then stalls

There is a filter light to found it out the hard way. It comes on when it detects suction in the filter housing i believe. when it happens pull ur filter cap it will be low on fuel. I had something in my tank that would block the pickup tube.

the valve that switches tanks could be clogged and bot letting enough fuel thru to keep the motor going. these trucks should have round 60 psi.

This is exactly what I had happen. Both showerheads disintegrated. Lol
Changed the lift pump twice trying to figure it out.

the ipr has nothing to do with the gauge on the dash. it shows the pressure of the low pressure system. and would have nothing to do with the fuel filter light either. the system getting plugged from pieces of the shower head pickup from the tank is very common. I have changed mine to just straight pipe but forgot to put a screen on the bottom so had mine getting clogged by some gelling in the tank. put some stainless screen on the end and no more problems.

yes but if the plastic got sucked into the pick up tube it will restrict the fuel flow to the filter and injector system causing the filter light to come on and engine to die. My front tank currently has a problem that causes my truck to die so I am running off my custom rear tank till I can fix my front tank.
