Not too familiar with this particular motor, but I work on semi's for a living. Sometimes when you get those filters changed, the gasket may have not been seated correctly or they over-tightened it crimping the gasket causing it to leak.

I just changed the fuel filter but there is some air in it.

The ir should bleed through engine over time provided that there's not too much. You could manually fill filter by disconnecting at engine side then carefully pouring fuel into it, but make sure to clean all fuel up that spills as you do it.

My 04 F250 diesel truck is loosing power every time I accelarate or go uphill and sometimes lets out a substantial amount of blue smoke from the exhaust. I changed the EGR Valve, and it improved for one...

Check the air filter and check the fuel filter. Most diesels lose power from a dirty air filter and moisture or dirt in the fuel filter. When you remove the fuel filter pour the fuel in a glass jar and let it sit awhile if you see two different fluids in the jar you have water at the bottom and fuel on top and need to replace the fuel filter. I think the EGR valve may have been a coincidence. let me know .

Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.

My toyota lucida is pouring black smoke out of the exhurst and oil leval light is on

Is it a diesel or petrol motor? If it is Diesel or petrol then black smoke is a sign that it is using excessive fuel so it could be a blocked air filter or fuel filter. if it is a diesel motor. So check these 2 items first.
The low oil level light is on because the engine needs the oil topped up, if you fill it to the correct level this will make the oil level light switch off. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

I have a 2005 ford f 350 and asking where is the second fuel filter and will i need to put diesel on the new filter?

alot of times on deisels when we do a fuel filter we get a no start. Bleeding the air out can be a pain at times. I highly recommend you have a shop do this for you. A no start at home will mean a tow to the garage

I have a 1988 Ford Ranger and the engine won't turn over. Sounds like it wants to start but won't. Any suggestions on where to start to look for the problem.

If it's trying to start then this would indicate that it is getting spark to the plug's (if its a petrol) Check if it is getting fuel ( petrol or diesel) Its most likely a fuel problem. If petrol check the carb. first pake off the intake at the top of the carb. and pour a small bit of petrol in and try starting it should start up for a few second's if this work's check the fuel lines filters etc. If its diesel check fuel filter an and if its clean then it could be drawing air into the system usually at the filter simple check is disconect the fuel line to the filter and the one fron the filter to the pump. join these two pipes together get a suitable piece of pipe that will fit tightly between them try turning again mite take a bit of turning as the system will have to bleed itself. Let me know if you get it fixed and please add if it's petrol or diesel save me a lot of explaining we can get it going no matter what the problem is. But as you asked this is somewhere to start.

Trying to find fuel filter location on 06 jetta 1.9 tdi

Should be mounted the same as a 2005. On the inner fender, above the right-hand wheel arch, in front of the windshield washer tank. Pull the retaining clip that secures the control valve to the top of the filter assembly. Pull up the control valve and its hoses, away from the filter. (1) To drain water out of filter: At the bottom of the fuel filter, loosen the drain plug, while holding a container underneath the filter to catch the diesel fuel and water. When you have drained the water, and diesel fuel is now draining -- stop! Twist the drain plug closed, pour a few ounces of fresh diesel fuel in the top of the filter. Use a new O-ring when reattaching the control valve to the filter top. When the vehicle is running, check for any leaks. (2) To replace the fuel filter: start where #1 above begins, disconnect the fuel control valve from the top of the filter; mark the other two fuel lines with tape and disconnect them (they may be attached with spring clamps that you will need to cut -- replace them with screw-type fasteners, see instructions below); remove the fasteners and take the filter and mounting bracket from the vehicle. Loosen the bracket and remove the filter. Fill a new filter with fresh diesel fuel (you don't want to try to turn the engine over to fill this filter -- you may burn up your starter) and install it in the bracket, then reattach the bracket to the vehicle. Attach the control valve with a new O-ring and secure the hoses with screw-type clamps. When the vehicle is running -- inspect for any leaks. Hope this helps -- these are instructions out of the 1998 - 2005 VW manual. Should be no different for the 2006.

Car has been parked for four years.

Ok, I got you, so read carefully:

These engines are the toughest on the planet. You can DEFINATELY get the engine running again, and cheap. Here's how:

First, DO NOT use starting fluid on any diesel. It'll make it go big bang due to the compression being twice that of a gas engine.

Diesel does not varnish like gas does.
New injection pump? No way, not on these engines. It's fine.

Diesel fuel grows a type of algae after sitting awhile. It'll be black and nasty and it clogs stuff. You 300D has a screen filter in tank, and then a plaster prefilter as well a secondary spin on filter on the engine.

1. Make sure your battery is fully charged. If bad, then replace it with a new one. Mercedes uses big batteries, but they're only about $85.

2. Replace the plastic pre-filter. About $5. It's on the driver's side of the engine, near the hand pump. Just unscrew the two hose clamps and insert new one. The old one may be black inside due to gunk.

Here's a pic:

It'll have a 90 degree elbow on in it. It's right about the "FEED" label in the pic, just below the injection pump. Just unscrew the two hose clamps and pull out filter. It may be black at this point. You'll only lose a small amount of diesel, It's not pressurized.

3. Now replace your spin on fuel filter, bout $10.
Here's a diagram:

You can take a large adjustable wrench to loosen the top bolt. Then you can spin the filter off, just like an oil filter.

Pour that diesel into the new filter. You can also add any additives to the filter to help clean the system. I use a small amount of transmission fluid. There's also and additive made by Red Line called "85 Plus". That stuff is like giving an anema to you diesel. Works great. Pour a little of that into the filter too.

Fill it to the tippy-top, then screw back onto bolt. Tighten that top bolt so as not to leak.

Now you got a good battery, and clean fuel. Start that ****** up. Cycle your glow plugs a few times if it's cold outside. Then just drive that thing. And I mean DRIVE IT HARD. It'll help move all that gunk through your system.

If the gunk is really bad, you may have to go back and clean that in-tank screen, but this should get you going for now!

Please leave feedback if this helps you out! Good luck!

My '95 VX diesal runs rough feels like fuel not getting through,

CHANGING THE FILTER ON FOUR DIESEL WILL only HELP IT-- SOUNDS AS IF YOU HAVE A FUEL SUPPLY OR CONTAMINATION PROBLEM both go through the FILTER so When Changing Filter Try to keep as Full As Possible and Pour into a GLASS Jar let it sit for 10-20 mins. Then you can see the Water (IF ANY) on TOP of the fuel, if you Find Water and Your tank is Low Top Off with DIESEL FUEL this Should Solve your Problem Fuel Filter Must Be REPLACED as Contamints can stow away in it, Bio is Good Both Ecologicly and >>CLEAN will Burn Well > FLUSHING with CLEAN DIESEL FUEL is a good Idea., A VALVE ADJUSTMENT if not performed in a long time or many miles, This can Do Wonders for Your Diesel I hope this helps you with your T L C Have a Good Day and if im Worthy RATE me Accordingly. Thank You, RejakWilson
