Question about 1985 Ford F 250
I have a 1985 Ford 250 Diesel Truck, just love it I brought it up from the Coast to the Okanogan and it is much colder here.
It sat for 5 weeks and my Mom’s BF wanted it moved and I did not want to start it as it had not been plugged in, but I did what I was told to try start it cold…I knew better.
Now it won’t start at all, it wants to but just does not have enough life.
I even tried Fire Starter (I know that is not great but I thought after being plugged in for a day I thought it would work)
I think it may have summer diesel in it since we can from warmer weather and I think it is flooded.
So I need to know how to bleed the injectors and I will also add the additive to change it to winter diesel and I think it should start after that as it has warmed up here now.
I have tried bleeding the fuel from the fuel filter under the hood but nothing!!!!
Please help as I would like to fix is asap
Thank you so much!!!!
From the gal that should have known better…lol
Just crack the injector nut crank it over till fuel comes out tighten nut,and so on to the others.

Diesels need a good battery to spin motor fast especially in cold weather. Also make sure your glow plugs work. For bleeding the system I use a remote starter switch connected to selonoid by passenger fender. Push in valve stem on fuel filter and crank engine until you get a good stream of fuel. Loosen injectors on passenger side maybe one turn. Crank engine to bleed off air. May have to do both sides. I do one side because it has a self bleed sysytem
