SOURCE: 1987 FORD FULL SIZE BRONCO FUEL PROBLEM, SHUTS DOWN

The only way air can get in the fuel line is if you have a hole in it! Problem of course is were? I would run the fuel line from back to front and back again. Look for any wet spot that you can find. You may even have to drop the tank to ba able to look on top. I would suspect the problem is in the line before the high preasure pump, being as you are pulling air into the system. I have seen leaky lines allow air in, but not let fuel out.

How to bleed the fuel system in the 2009 Mondeo after changing the fuel filter on a diesel


You don't. You just crank the engine until it starts. Modern vehicles work on a pressurised system with a return back to the tank. The fuel is pumped from the tank to the injectors and excess fuel is returned to the tank.

Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over


You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

2003 ford transit diesel fuel getting to injectors engine is turning over but not firing


Have your injection pump checked. If the diesel fuel feed
going to the pistons is not highly atomized, there's no way that the diesel fuel gets to explode to keep your
engine to run. However, also check the air filter system
going to your engine. To get the diesel fuel to explode needs right air fuel ratio. Once these are checked, I'm
sure you get your diesel car running.

The age of this transit should be a self bleeding system. But if not, you will see some metal tubes running into the cylinder head, with nuts at the end. Loosen these and crank the engine over until fuel spurts through. You will only need to do 2 or 3 to get the engine started.
I have personally used a damp start spray, in the air inlet to fire up diesel trucks before and not needed to bleed the system at all. Worth a try, just open up the air filter and squirt some into the inlet, crank it over and it should start.
