Question about Cars & Trucks
Truck wouldn't start & the fuel gauge reads empty but the tank is full changed both fuel filters still won't start, appears to be getting fuel.
Crack open an injector line and look for fuel at that point if no fuel there, take off oil filtertype fuel filter and look to see if it has fuel in it..we had a ford f650 superduty that a driver ran empty and were forever bleeding att hthe air out of the system to restart it..on diesels the system can have no air in the lines anywhere..so if the filter is empty, fill it before installing it...saves on the starter getting hot...in extreme cases you can pump pressure into the tank up to 20 psi and force fuel up front be careful on plastic tanks though...good luck and repost please...

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

It is the fuel heater, All you have to do is unplug it.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the diagnosis. It's disappointing that our local Ford service will not advise to help get it running, even to make it in for service."
