Question about 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty
After filling my F-250 superduty 6.0 with diesel so I thought a couple days later it started running real bad the lose of power at first then it would'nt start,I figured it was something in the fuel,and sure enough after checking the filter I could smell the gas,so I contacted sinclair,witch they refused to take responsibillty even though I had receits to prove I put diesel in it,I drained all the bad fuel and put fresh diesel in but still cant get it to run,any ideas thanks Greg Clark
This is NOT good! You can try bleeding the fuel system first. More than likely, air is trapped in the fuel lines, injector, and injector lines. Bleed at the fuel pump, (On the fuel pump to injector pump side), then the injector pump, then each line.
(You have to loosen the fitting to each line to each part, then when the air is bled out, and fuel comes through steadily, close it)
I also suggest an attorney to resolve the problem, as there may be damage. Pistons could have holes in them. Do a compression check.
Usually diesel's have 16:1 ratio compression. Today's gasoline engines have anywhere from 8:1, to 8.5:1, to maybe 9.0:1, (Maybe)
I'm willing to bet though, that you just have air in the system, and it needs to be fully bled out.
There is NO half stepping on this!
You have to start at the source, loosen each fitting, bleed the air out, and continue on down the line.
