SOURCE: FORD DIESEL WILL NOT START
This system should be self priming, however if it did run out of fuel, I highly recommend changing the filters.After doing so have an assistant turn key to run as you listen for fuel lift pump running,(under drivers side floor attached to frame, one of the fuel filters is part of pump,the other filter is on top of engine) Could have hurt pump by running dry. They are notorious for hard start after filter change and/or out of fuel.Hope this helps.

I have run my VW diesels out of fuel and there are several ways that you can fix this.
1) fill the fuel tank and crank the engine until it starts. Do not crank for more than 20 seconds or so to prevent damage to the starter. You may need to run the glow plugs and crank the engine again if it does not start the first time.
2) pull start the car. Put the car in second gear and have someone tow you. Let out the clutch and turn on the key so that the glow plugs glow. This is also a good way to start your vehicle if it is cold out.
3)Fill the fuel filter with fuel (there is a screw on the top that can be removed and you can fill the fuel filter with fuel to help it start faster.
The 1.5 and 1.6 diesels are not very hard to get going after you run out of fuel.
