SOURCE: dodge diesel lost its prime!
You have to loosen your injector lines one at a time and have someone crank the engine. once you get fuel to that injector,tighten it and move onto the next one. This will be a lengthy process and make sure you have good batteries cause this process could drain them. Good luck

hi from the uk if your vehicle is equiped with a manual fuel primer device? and unable to prime f i pump ? no fuel at f i p are you trying to prime with the ignition on ? as the fuel shut off solenoid that is fitted to f i p is elec/ignition on activated so fuel can then be primed into the f i p and then to assist starting just loosen a couple of injectors delivery pipes while turning engine over then retighten the stop solenoid is liken to a temp sender unit ? and is normally located at the top of f i p adjacent to fuel inj pipe connections solenoid has a wire attached to activate fuel valve in solenoid allowing fuel flow and ign off shuts fuel supply if you operate on/off with key ign you can hear click if working? but better test is by volt meter to test if ign supply ok? if you have merely ran out of fuel or just changed filter ? then provided no air leaks on supply fro tank the above should get you started ? come back if you have more info/update? hope and wish you good luck

I see that you had the injectors replaced 20,000 miles ago. I would still check the oil to make sure it is not overfull. The new injectors could be bad. If the oil level is not overfull then get a paper towel and touch the dip stick tip on the paper towel while oil is on the dip stick. If it's only oil it will not spread. If it has diesel in the oil the oil with spread. If this test doesn't show the injectors to be bad then you have three other possibilities. The FICM (fuel injection control module), the fuel pressure regulator, or the injection pump. It's hard to pinpoint what the problem is without running more tests and the only way to run those tests is with the computer the dealership has. Just so you know your injectors are still under warranty until 100,000 miles. Most likely you will have to take it to the dealership to get you truck fixed. I hope this helps you some.

there is air in the fuel line causing the fuel not get to the injectors. you will have to open the fuel ine AT the injectors to bleed out the air while someone turns the key as if starting the car.
