Hi , I have just replaced the fuel fiter on my VW Tansporter T4 TDI 2.5 diesel 2001. How do I bleed it? I can not see the fuel through the hoses as they are black..

I have lifted the Valve off the filter.. (like my manuel said) opened the drain plug on the bottom of the filter..

Close the filter drain cock, remove the filter, fill the filter with fuel and put it back on. Now crank the engine to start at a faster speed and let it blubber till it smooths out and your good. If you\'ve been cranking on it already, hope not, then you have allowed air into your fuel system and you must bleed all the air out at the injector lines until there is fuel coming out of each line you\'ve got cracked open at each injector. It will take some time and a lot of cranking. But if you do it like I said to start with, it will start easily. I\'m an old timer and love diesel engines. Old school way is the only way.

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.

Is there a fuel pump reset on a 01 TDI jetta ? I ran out of diesel AMD now it won't start


When diesels run out of fuel they fill the lines with air. To get it to start you have to bleed the air out of the system starting at the fuel filter pump and any where else there is a bleed screw. IF you have or can get your hands on a owners manual or a work shop manual for your car then the process and location of bleeders will be explained.

2005 vw polo 1.9 tdi wont start


if it starts when you pour fuel in the intake.. then fuel is not reaching the tbi from the tank..you say you put a new fuel pump on this..did you bleed the fuel lines? if not do this because there is an airlock in those lines..either you need to open a fuel line at the tbi unit to bleed it all out.. or be looking at a clogged up fuel filter..
