It sounds as if you have a problem in the switcher valve. Make sure front tank is full! There is a problem with the way these are origionally set up. I have seen where the guages showed full but were empty. If the valve is damaged it coould have been using the front tank with the rear also, although it is not supposed to happen it did on this particular truck.You may also want to check and make sure the fuel is clean in that tank.

I would start with changing the fuel filter, with the tow truck that work on every day, I service them every two weeks, and the fuel filters come back full of grim the deisel fuel filters have to get changed more often with the fuel going around, try and stay away from pride gas stations, they have caused 8,000 in repairs to my trucks.

1997 Ford F 350 Turbo Deisel fuel system

Spraying starting fluid into your intake is NOT a good idea. These diesels are not like a gas motor. Check (replace) your CPS (cam positioning sensor) They fail quite often on these trucks. Ford has recently released a newer (and cheaper!) model as a recall part. They arent any better than the old ones though. These trucks also have UVC (under valve cover) harnesses that contain the wiring for the glow plugs and injectors. These also fail quite often. Usually its just a bad pin in the plug and there are pin kits for them. A scanner like an Auto Enginuity would tell you for certain whats going on though.

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.

do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
