A 2004 E350 turbo diesel van 6.0 liter keeps getting airbound and shuts of


check for loose hose fittings -cracked fuel lines --leaks at the fuel filter gasket--leaks at the pump shafts . I would be looking at the filter gasket as it may be not be sealing properly. Check that the air equaliser valve at the top of the tank is not blocked and creating a vacuum in the tank

I have a 2000 F350 diesel manual trans 4X4 200,000+ miles that is having a power loss, idles fine but when you take off it starts to sputter like a gas motor with a stuck choke. Just changed the fuel...


If you changed the fuel filter 2 weeks ago, I would first verify that the fuel filter is good! Dirt from the tank could have clogged it up again.

The next suspect would be the fuel pump in the tank.

What does the vehecile act like if you rev the engine up in neutral? Does it show any signs of fuel starvation? If so concentrate on fuel system.

Fuel filter light comes on when change from rear tank to front tank fuel filter has been change, is there an fuel relay if is where,


I am guessing that your truck is a Diesel. There is no electric fuel pump on the diesel models. The fuel filter light comes on when there is not enough fuel pressure. Possible problems include the selector vavle not fully switching, and/or an obstruction in the pick up in the front tank.

the selector valve is located underneath the truck on the inside of the frame rail on the drivers side If I remember right. Try swtiching to the front tank and tapping the selector valve assembly. If that clears up the light then the selector valve is sticking and needs to be repaired or replaced.

I have a 97 f350 with 7.3l diesel. im driving down the road and check engine light comes on and has a loss of power. i shut truck off and then restart and light is out and runs fine for a little while then...


It sounds like a loss of fuel pressure caused by a clogged fuel filter. Replacing the filter in the engine compartment should solve your problem. but if continues or comes back within a week or two it could mwan that the mesh filter on the pick-up pipe in the fuel tank is also clogged and requires cleaning due to picking up a batch of dirty fuel. If the fuel tank filter is clogged then it would py to drain and flush the tank to remove any impurities to prevent the problem recurring.

7.3 V8 DIESEL RAN OUT OF FUEL WILL NOT START


When you get some fuel you can unscrew the fuel filter and fill it with diesel. Then put the filter back on without spilling the fuel.

There should be enough diesel to prime the motor and get rid of the airlock. Also with diesels make sure you are using the correct tank if you have a tank switch.

Where and how to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford F350 7.3 turbo disel truck? Is there more than one fuel filter?


Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Diesel Engines The 6.9L and 7.3L diesel engines use a one-piece spin-on fuel filter. Do not add fuel to the new fuel filter. Allow the engine to draw fuel through the filter.
  1. Remove the spin-on filter by unscrewing it counterclockwise with your hands or a strap wrench.
  2. Clean the filter mounting surface.
  3. Coat the gasket or the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel. This helps ensure a good seal.
  4. Tighten the filter by hand until the gasket touches the filter mounting surface.
  5. Tighten the filter an additional 1⁄2 turn. NOTE: After changing the fuel filter, the engine will purge the trapped air as it runs. The engine may run roughly and smoke excessively until the air is cleared from the system.

Diesel light sensor comes on


When was the last PM? With the oil change the fuel filters should of been done and before the filter in the engine compartment was removed the small yellow drain valve should have been opened. If it was then maybe you have a little water in the tank. that light should be an indicator for water in fuel.

1994 F350 WILL NOT START


you simply have to bleed the fuel lines...

to do that just loose up the line and have someone rotate the engine until you have some fuel going there...

make sure that your fuel filter is full because you will do this for nothing...

it should only take like 5 minutes of bleeding...
