Question about Cars & Trucks
Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

SOURCE: engine dies
I had the same problem with my 94 chevy 6.5 diesel,and spent alot of money trying things that people told me to try.I wound up taking it to the dealer and they told me it was the injection pump.They put one in it and that fixed it.It has run great for over a year and a half.This set me back about $4000.00!

SOURCE: air in fuel lines wont
Did you replace the filter and lines because of the airlocked injectors or did you get the problem after changing the filter and lines? Did you replace the injectors?
On the TDI's it takes a lot to get them bled. Even just replacing the fuel filter can be a pain. It is recommended to fill the filter with fuel through the center opening when replacing. I usually just take the old filter and pour it into the new filter. Try this and you still may have to crank it several times(many, many times). Let me know if there is any change.

Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg
