Why does my 1997 f250 460 check engine light come on and the engine dies?

Asked by Jul 27, 2014 at 06:33 PM about the 1997 Ford F-250 4 Dr XLT 4WD Crew Cab SB HD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck runs good when running but the check engine light comes on and the engine dies
occasionally and sometimes recovers when I switch between fuel tanks but other times
just dies and doesn't want to start for sometime. No idea why it decides to start or not
start. It's a 460 v8.

I would check fuel lines and also fuel pump or sending unit.
